This course covers the basic chemical structures and properties of moisture, protein, carbohydrate, lipids, minerals and vitamins and their roles in food systems.
Also covered will be the principles of chemical and instrumental methods for the qualitative and quantitative analyses of moisture, protein, carbohydrate, lipids, minerals and vitamins. Students will perform experiments to determine major food components using chemical and instrumental methods.
4. Explain the principles and applications of analytical methods for food components.
5. Analyze and evaluate the compositions of food products.
6. Command basic food analysis for the advanced food science courses.

WHY DO WE ANALYZE FOODS?
This sample should be representative of the whole material if the analysis of the sample is to have any meaning.
Sample should bea composite that adequately samples from each of the populations within the product to be analyzed.
