INTRODUCTION

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 potential employment areas for the graduates of Food science and technology are food industries and health science industries. Also, more opportunities are available for food scientist, Biochemist, Cereal Scientist, Dairy Products Scientist, Director of Quality Assurance / USDA Research Scientist, Flavour Chemist,  Food Biochemist, Clinical Laboratories, research institutes and teaching Institutions.
