Research in this area of ​​food science should provide data on how to provide the world's population with safe, nutritious, appetizing and affordable food. Achieving this goal requires an in-depth study of the issues of processing, packaging, distribution and evaluation of food. It involves many disciplines and uses the principles of biology, microbiology, chemistry, biochemistry, biochemistry, nutrition, physics and engineering to solve practical problems related to the food industry. Food scientists were among the first to work with biotechnology. Food scientists work with food from the moment it leaves the farm to the storage of the final product, including all processing, preparation and distribution operations. In addition, they determine the factors that influence the safety, nutritional value and acceptability of food.
