    What is it really like to be a food scientist? What do food scientists do each day? Food science is the study of the physical, biological, and chemical makeup of food, and the concepts underlying food processing. Food technology is the application of food science to the selection, preservation, processing, packaging, distribution, and use of safe food. The food science industry is the largest industry in the United States with many job opportunities from the farm, to the table. In Food Chemistry, students learn the knowledge, skills, and practices required for careers in food science, dietetics, and nutrition.
    Within the next 50 years, the world's population is expected to rise to over 9 billion. Learn how your access to a variety of safe and nutritious foods would be affected in a world without food science. Food safety would be a guessing game. Food science and technology provide sustainable solutions throughout the food system. Learn how food scientists work to ensure environmentally friendly food production and how food scientists develop food products for special populations; those with specific health needs such as newborns, children, seniors, and diabetics.
