Food Science Lab
The Food Science Lab is used for NTN 231, Principles of Food Science and Preparation and NTN 480, Experimental Foods. In NTN 231, emphasis is placed on understanding and applying the basic physical and chemical properties of foods. Students develop skills in recipe interpretation, cooking methods, and food safety and sanitation. In NTN 480, students develop objective and sensory methods of evaluating chemical and physical qualities of food. Students modify recipes to develop new food products, design and conduct experiments, interpret results, and prepare findings from research by developing a research poster.
