COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course objectives

Acquiring a basic knowledge on
- main classes of food
- nutritive and non-nutritive food components
- chemical composition of food from different classes: cereals, fruits, vegetables, milk and dairy products, fish, oils, conditors
- the influence of processing and food preparation on change of the chemical composition of food
- the understanding of processing influence as well as storage conditions on change of the chemical composition of food

Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course

 

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)

After completing the course, the student will become familiarized with the major concepts of raw materials in food industry, which includes:

Grading and evaluating student work in class and at the final exam

During semester, two written exams are provided (as partical examinations). Test will be carried out within 60 minutes. Students who obtain positive mark from both exams, will have oral examination in order to obtain the final mark. During semester, students should present their seminar work on selected topic within this course. The final mark of this course will count the mark from seminar work, marks from written exams, and mark from oral exams.
