To The Teacher
The textbook, Introduction to Food Science, is designed to be "teacher friendly." Each chapter begins with a list of Objectives and Key Terms. Chapter outlines with different heading levels are very complete. Then every chapter ends with a list of Review Questions and Student Activities and a list of Resources. A workable lesson plan includes the following: e The topic e Overall instructional goal e Rationale (why is this important) Lesson outline a Instructional procedures e Evaluation process e Materials and aids Lesson topics can come from the chapter titles or from a major heading in a chapter. Overall instructional goals are listed for each chapter in this instructor's guide. The rationale for teaching the lesson can come from a pretest or from some in-class demonstration or activity based on the Student Activities section at the end of the chapter. The Lesson Outline comes directly from the major headings in the chapter. Instructional procedures need to be varied for different learning styles. In general, instructional procedures include: Focusing event-something to get the students' attention e Teaching procedures-methods you will use e Formative check-progress check throughout the lesson e Student participation-how you will get the students involved Closure-how you will end the lesson

After the lesson is presented, some type of evaluation process will measure outcomes to determine if the material has been learned. Finally, as lessons are prepared and plans made, a list of materials needed and teaching aids should be developed. Each chapter provides a list of Student Activities and Resources, including some ideas for using the Internet,

Preview chapters with students. Start with the Objectives of the chapter, and then explain the importance of knowing the meanings of the Key Terms. Explain that tables, figures, and figure captions contain helpful information. Encourage the students to frequently use the Glossary in the back of the book. All the Key Terms can be found in the Glossary. Make reading assignments. Connect the reading assignments to the chapter Objectives and to the use of the Student Activities section. Review the Resources at the end of the chapter for other class assignments or lesson enhancements.


Ib the W h e r

Make transparencies to use in the lesson discussion. Obtain any materials or make any arrangements for some type of focusing event, student participation, or any of the Student Activities that are used. Decide which of the Review Questions at the end of the chapter to use as a pretest. This will help determine what the students know and stimulate interest. For example, use five of the questions at the end of the chapter for a pretest. To develop your lesson plan, start with the a pretest and an interest approach then build the class discussion around the chapter outline, transparencies, problems, and student activities. Tables, lists, and figures or charts in a chapter can be used to produce transparencies. Use the chapter sidebars. Make in-class reading assignments of the sidebars. Ask questions about the sidebar. Summarize the chapter (lesson). Then assess how well the students met the objectives. This can be done by giving the students a test or quiz based on the chapter objectives, or by developing projects that reinforce the objectives. Also, at the end of each chapter in the textbook some suggestions are made as to how to search the Internet. Use these for some projects and reports. Use the Appendix. It contains information to enhance learning. Table A-7 provides a list of specific Internet sites leading to lots of valuable information that can be used to enhance the learning process. This table of Internet sites is reproduced at the back of this guide as Appendix A. Refer to Appendix Table A-8 in the textbook often. It is a fairly comprehensive food composition table that can enhance many of the lessons. Besides Introduction to Food Science, other resource books are available that provide more details for some areas of food science, or they provide other ideas for teaching the subject. Appendix B in this guide suggests some resource books. Finally, a list of supply companies is provided in Appendix C at the back of this guide. These companies sell educational materials that enhance learning through classroom activities and demonstrations. Also, many of the companies provide fact sheets and newsletters that can be very helpful. Above all, realize that students pick out the best teachers by their sincerity and their enthusiasm for the subject and overall quest for knowledge. Let it show!

Food Science
Food science strives to meet the demands of consumers in local, national, and international environments.

Consumers vote every day in the marketplace with their dollars, and the market listens carefully to their votes. A continuous feedback exists from consumers, who respond to the offerings of marketers trying to meet the perceived wants of consumers. Changes in the makeup of the population, lifestyles, incomes, and attitudes on food safety, health, and convenience have drastically altered the conditions facing producers and marketers of food products. Food manufacturers and distributors maintain vigorous efforts to meet changing consumer demands. The food industry is divided into production, manufacturing/processing,distribution, and marketing. The industry is highly responsive to change, and interrelated with others. Consumers drive the food industry, and to some extent the food industry drives the consumer, making changes in food consumption, food types, and meals purchased. Food is now a global commodity due to changes in export/import laws, transportation, and processing and communication.

Review o

The study of food science requires an understanding of simple inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry principles.

Carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins, are all important to food science, and they are composed of smaller building blocks. This chapter contains a review of important chemical interactions and concepts encountered in food science. Atoms are the smallest unit of an element that still shows properties of the element. Atoms bond with other atoms in chemical bonds such as covalent bonds, hydrogen bonds, ionic bonds, and Van der Waals bonds. Molecules are the smallest identifiable units of pure substances. These molecules are formed by chemical reactions or become involved in chemical reactions. Reactions including those of metabolism can be classified as oxidation-reduction. Organic chemistry involves carboncontaining molecules; such groups are hydroxyl, amino, ammonia, methyl, and carboxyl.

Chemistry o

Nutrients are naturally occurring chemical substances found in food. There are six categories of nutrients: proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and water. The chemistry of these nutrients influences the characteristics of our food.

Nutrition is the process by which the foods people eat provide the nutrients they need to grow and stay healthy. The digestive and nutritive needs of humans are discussed in Chapter 4. Besides contributing to nutrition, carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids function in food. For example, carbohydrates enhance flavor, contribute to texture, prevent spoilage, and influence color. The function of carbohydrates in foods to some extent depends on their type-monosaccharides, disaccharide~, polysaccharides. Starch is a polysaccharide whose characteristics depend on the type of or plant producing the starch. Cellulose is a nondigestible polysaccharide that contributes to the characteristics of food, and demonstrates some health benefits. Proteins in food can act as emulsifiers and also influence the color, flavor, and texture of food. Lipids contribute to the texture, flavor, and heat transfer of foods. Lipids also carry the flavors and the fat-soluble vitamins. Food provides the vitamins and minerals necessary for normal growth and health. Although not a nutrient, water is necessary for a solvent of all nutrients. Biotin, choline, and phytochemicals are nutrients that seem to have some health benefits but do not have clearly defined requirements.

rition and Diges

Nutrients-the components of food-have specific functions in the body, and a l of them together are l required for overall health. The digestive system breaks down food into nutrients for absorption.

People require energy and certain other essential nutrients. These nutrients are essential because the body cannot make them and must obtain them from food. Essential nutrients include vitamins, minerals, certain amino acids, and certain fatty acids. Foods also contain other components such as fiber that are important for health. The Food Nutrition Board of the National Research Council establishes Recommended Dietary Allowances and Dietary References Intakes. These guidelines provide daily nutrient levels for maintaining normal functions and health. The RDA lists recommendations for energy; protein; vitamins A, E, K, C, the B vitamins; and the minerals iron, zinc, iodine, and selenium. These recommendations vary according to age, gender, pregnancy, and lactation. Protein requirements for humans should consider the essential amino acids. The food pyramid provided by the FDA is easy for the average person to follow to ensure adequate nutrition. The digestive process includes ingestion, digestion, absorption, and elimination. Nutrients in the diet are progressively broken into smaller components by mechanical, chemical, and enzymatic means. Small molecules resulting from digestion are absorbed to supply the body with energy, protein, vitamins, and minerals.

Introduction to Food Science

Quality Factors in Foods

Consumers expect certain qualities fkom their food, including color, flavor, texture, and even size. Food science works to maintain these qualities.

Quality of a food product involves maintenance or improvement of the key attributes of the productincluding color, flavor, texture, safety, healthfulness, shelf life, and convenience. To maintain quality, it is important to control microbiological spoilage, enzymatic degradation, and chemical degradation. These components of quality depend upon the composition of the food, processing methods, packaging, and storage. When quality factors are missing or different than expected, the food is rejected. Food science determines and uses methods to measure food-quality factors. These methods ensure a consistent, reliable product. Some evaluation methods are chemical and mechanical techniques. Others are completely human, such as taste panels. The USDA-AMS establishes quality and grading standards. Also, in cooperation with industry, the AMS develops and maintains c o m m ~ aitem descriptions for hunl dreds of items. Within the food industry, methods such as HACCP, TQM, and GMP monitor quality.

t Operations in

Food Processing
Most food processing is comprised as a series of physical processes that can be broken down into a number of basic operations.

Unit operations make up the basics of food processing. These unit operations can stand alone and depend upon logical physical principles. Unit operations include materials handling, cleaning, separating, size reduction, fluid flow, mixing, heat transfer, concentration, drying, forming, packaging, and controlling. Most food processing involves a combination or an overlap of these unit operations. Where unit operations overlap or are combined, complex controls ensure the proper function of each operation. Many of the unit processes discussed in this chapter are discussed in more detail in chapters that follow.

Food science seeks to minimize food deterioration as much as possible.

Deterioration includes changes in organoleptic quality, nutritional value, food safety, aesthetic appeal, color, texture and flavor. To some degree, all foods undergo deterioration after harvest The role of food science is to minimize negative changes as much as possible. All foods undergo deterioration-physical, chemical, or biological. There are many ways to control this deterioration-from proper handling in the initial stages of harvesting to correct food preservation techniques. Some deterioration produces toxins that are not destroyed by heat. Some of these toxins can cause infections in humans. All foods from living tissues have enzymes. Some of the postharvest enzymes are desirable and are controlled by heat, chemicals, and radiation. Food processors realize the importance of controlling deterioration through such means as heat, cold, drying, acids, sugar, atmosphere, chemicals, and radiation.

Instructor's Guide



Heating (cooking) foods kills some microorganisms, destroys most enzymes, and improves shelf life.

Heat produces varying degrees of preservation depending on the product and the use of the product. Heat treatments can be selected on the basis of time and temperature combination to inactivate the most resistant microbe and the heat penetration characteristics of the food and the container. The most heat resistant microbe in canned foods is Clostridium botulinum Thermal death curves describe the time/temperature relationships for preservation of food. Depending on the type of food and its acidity, the heat treatment can be mild or severe. Convection, conduction, and radiation transfer heat to the processed foods. Commercially, foods are heated before or after packaging. Different types of retorts efficiently process commercial foods. Aseptic packaging is used when the food is sterilized outside the container. Home canning follows the same principles as commercial heat preservation methods.

Cold (cool) storage, refrigeration, and frozen storage are methods of food preservation and processing differing in temperature and time.

Various methods of using cold take food to temperatures necessary for cold storage or frozen storage. Freezing and refrigeration preserve foods not because they destroy microbes but because they slow or stop microbial growth. Refrigeration temperatures range from 40" to 45F; frozen storage temperatures range from 32" to OF. Refrigerated storage also requires air circulation, humidity control, and a modii3ed gas atmosphere. During refrigerated storage, foods can experience the absorption of flavor, a loss of firmness, color, flavor, and sugar. Freezing technology has been key to the development of convenience foods. Foods properly frozen and stored experience minimal changes in food quality. Frozen storage varies with temperature and the type of food being stored. General freezing methods include still air, blast freezer, and fluidized-bed freezer. Single plate, double plate, and slush freezers freeze foods or packages that directly contact a cold surface. Immersion freezing is the direct contact of the food or package and the refrigerant such as liquid nitrogen. To maintain quality, frozen foods must be packaged in airtight and liquid-tight strong and flexible containers. Home freezing of foods follows the same general principles as commercial freezing.

Drying and Dehydra
.. ... . .. . .. . . . . . ... ... ... . .. . .. . . .. .. .... . .. .. ...



Besides preservation, drying and dehydration decrease the weight and volume of a product and thereby decrease shipping costs.

Drying and dehydration both remove water from foods. Dehydration occurs under natural conditions in the field and during cooking. Dehydrated and dried foods are lighter, take up less space, and cost less to ship. Drying is affected by surface area, temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure. As foods dry, they demonstrate a typical drying curve. Some chemical changes that can occur during dehydration include caramelization, browning, loss of rehydration, and loss of flavor. Foods can be dried by air convection, drum, vacuum, or freeze-drying. Food concentration removes one third to two thirds of the water and reduces weight and volume. Methods of concentration include solar, open-kettle, flash evaporators, thin-film evaporators, freeze concentration, and ultrafiltration or reverse osmosis. Home drying of foods follows the same general principles as commercial processes. Small home dehydrators are available or can be built. The kitchen oven (or microwave) can also be used for drying foods.

Radiant and E Energy


Ionizing radiation, microwaves, and ohmic heat are new methods for heating and preserving foods.

Ionizing radiation and microwaves are invisible energy waves moving through space. Food processors use these two forms of radiation. Electrical or ohmic heating of foods is a relatively new method for heating and preserving foods. Ionizing radiation (irradiation) and microwaves are both used to preserve food. Although irradiation has been in use since 1950, the FDA must approve its uses on each additional food. The latest approval for irradiation occurred in 1997 for fresh and frozen red meats. Irradiation serves four uses in the food industry: preservation; sterilization; control of sprouting, ripening, and insect damage; and control of foodborne illness. Though irradiation demonstrates little effect on nutrient content, the greatest challenge will be consumer acceptance. Microwaves are also used to heat foods by generating heat inside the food due to water friction. Scientists refer to microwaves as nonionizing radiation. Microwave development has led to a whole new group of convenience foods. Attempts to use microwave energy in food processing include baking, concentrating, cooking, curing, drying, heating, puffiing, foaming, tempering, and thawing. The best use of microwaves depends on the product quality and the cost. Ohmic heating heats foods between electrodes using alternating current. It is one of the newest methods of heating, and it is useful because solid and liquid in a food are heated at the same time.

Fermentation, Microorganisms, and Biotechno

Food science develops the use of fermentation, microorganisms, and biotechnology to alter, improve, and preserve food.

Fermentation allows the growth of microorganisms in order to produce a stable product Products commonly produced, at least in part, by fermentation include: beer, pickles, olives, some meat products, bread, cheese, coffee, cocoa, soy sauce, sauerkraut, and wine. Microorganisms can become food, and biotechnology changes the way microorganisms are used. Fermentation is the breakdown of carbohydrate materials by bacteria and yeasts under anaerobic (without atmospheric oxygen) conditions. The main benefit of fermentation is preservation of the product. For example, acid produced may prevent spoilage by some microorganisms. Fermentation may add flavor-for example, wine. It may remove or alter existing flavors-for example, soy. Or fermentation can alter the chemical characteristics of the food as in sugar to ethanol, ethanol to acetic acid, or sugar to lactic acid. To encourage the growth of certain microorganisms, fermentation can be controlled by pH, salt content, and temperature. Controlling fermentation is an attempt to favor desired organisms. Fermentation is stopped by pasteurizing and cooling. Microorganisms, like SCP, can become food. Biotechnology can bring great changes to food production but not without controversy.

Food additives (chemicals) are used only to maintain or to improve quality of food or to give it some added quality that consumers want.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) monitors the use of additives and allows them to be used only if proven information has shown that the additive will accomplish the intended effect in the food. Also, the amount used cannot be more than is needed to accomplish the intended effect in the food. Food additives are used to maintain or improve the quality of food. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) monitors the use of additives. According to the FDA, additives are any substance intentionally or indirectly a component of food. Intentional food additives include the general categories of flavor, colors, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, antimicrobial agents, acidulants, sequestrants, gums (thickeners), sweeteners, and surface active agents. Some additional additives include fat replacers and irradiation. The majority of direct food additives fall into the category of Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS). Unacceptable uses of food additives include any uses to deceive, disguise, lower nutritional value, or avoid good manufacturing practices. For years the use of food additives has been controlled by the Delaney clause.

Introduction to Food Science



Food science develops packaging to protect food. The package also serves as a vehicle for the manufacturer to communicate with the consumer.

Food packaging development started with humankind's earliest beginnings. Early forms of packaging ranged from gourds to seashells to animal skins. Later came pottery, cloth, and wooden containers. These packages were created to facilitate transportation and trade. Using modern technology, society created an overwhelming number of new packages containing a multitude of food products. A modern food package has many functions, its main purpose being to physically protect the product during transport. The package also acts as a barrier against potential spoilage agents, which vary with the food product. Practically all foods should be protected from microorganisms, moisture, and objectionable odors. Consumers rely on the package to offer that protection. Aside from protecting the food, the package serves as a vehicle for the manufacturer to communicate with the consumer. Nutritional information, ingredients, and often recipes are found on a food label. The package is also used as a marketing tool designed to attract attention at the store. This makes printability an important property of a package. Globalization of the food industry and the consumers are driving the development of innovations in packaging.

Introduction to Food Science



Milk provides high-quality protein, energy, vitamins, and minerals to human nutrition. Besides fluid milk the dairy industry produces a variety of milk products including butter, cheeses, condensed and dried products, and cultured products.

Milk is the first food of young mammals. It provides a high-quality protein, a source of energy, and vitamins and minerals. Worldwide, many mammalian species are used to produce milk and milk products. Some of these include goats, sheep, horses, and yaks. The focus of this chapter is milk from dairy cows. Most milk in the United States is produced by cows. The dairy industry produces milk as a fluid product and in a variety of manufactured products including butter, cheeses, condensed, dry, and cultured. The USDA and the FDA maintain quality standards. To protect the consumer against pathogenic microorganisms in milk, it is pasteurized. Butterfat globules in homogenized milk are reduced in size to prevent coalescence. Butterfat is also separated from milk and added back to produce beverage milk with specific fat content or to be used in the production of butter and creams. Butter is produced by churning butterfat, and a by-product is buttermilk. Concentrated or dried dairy products such as evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, condensed whey, milk powder, or whey powder increase shelf life and convenience and decrease transportation costs. Traditionally, cheese developed as a way to preserve the nutrients of milk. Today, many varieties of cheese have evolved. Production of cheese basically involves the coagulation of the milk and separation of the whey. Coagulation can be accomplished with enzymes, acid, or heat. Yogurt is a fermented dairy product, as are acidophilus milk, sour cream, and kefii. Fermented dairy products require a starter culture for fermentation. By legal definition, ice cream contains 10 percent or more butterfat. It also relies on sweeteners at a level of l 2 to 16 percent. The USDA established grade standards for butter, cheese, and instant nonfat dry milk. The FDA established grade designations for fluid milk, yogurt, and cottage cheese. Only officially graded products may carry the grade shield. In an effort to meet new consumer demands, the food industry developed milk and milk product substitutes such as coffee whiteners, whipped toppings, imitation milk, and reduced fat products.

Meat, Poul ry, and Eggs


Food science maintains the quality of meat, poultry, and eggs and seeks to provide safe, healthy, and new foods based on these products.

The first meat packers in the United States were the colonial New England farmers, who packed meats in salt as a means of preservation. The beef industry moved from the large metropolitan areas to be near commercial feedlots in the central United States in such states as Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska. The pork industry remains centrally located in the Midwest, principally in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, and Nebraska, but it is making a move to the west and southeast. Rapid growth and vertical integration characterize the poultry industry. The term "meat" generally refers to the skeletal muscle from the carcasses of animals-beef and veal (cattle), pork (hogs), and lamb (sheep). Inspection takes place at practically every step of the livestock procurement and meatpacking processes. Grading establishes and maintains uniform trading standards and aids in the determination of the value of various cuts of meat. Carcasses are given both a quality and a yield grade. Meat and processed meat products, and other foods of animal origin,provide a complete protein source that contains, in favorable quantities, all the essential animo acids. The most causes of variation in tenderness of beef, pork, lamb, and veal include genetics, species and age, feeding, muscle type, suspension of the carcass, electrical stimulation, chilling rate, aging, mechanical tenderizing, chemical tenderizing, freezing and thawing, cooking, and carving. Poultry includes meat from chickens and turkeys. Meat from chickens and turkeys provides a high-quality protein that is low in fat. The protein is an excellent source of essential amino acids. Appearance, texture, and flavor of poultry meat are a primary concern in the food industry and to the consumer. Poultry meat color is affected by factors such as bird age, sex, strain, diet, intramuscular fat, meat, moisture content, pre-slaughter conditions, and processing variables. Chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, guineas, and pigeons are all eligible for grading and certification services provided by the USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) Poultry Program's Grading Branch. Although eggs are widely known as breakfast entrees, they also perform in many other ways for the knowledgeable cook. Eggs are an excellent source of amino acids. The structure and characteristics of an egg include its color, shell, white, yolk, air cell, chalaza, germinal disc, and membranes. Classification is determined by interior and exterior quality and designated by the letters AA, A, or B. In many egg packing plants, the USDA provides a grading service for shell eggs. Food manufacturers have taken different approaches to reducing the cholesterol in eggs, from physically separating the cholesterol from the yolk to formulating yolks from other products and combining these with the albumen. Producers are also trying to reduce the cholesterol and change the fat content of eggs by changing the genetics of chickens.

Fish and shellfish spoil easily, so food science finds ways to process and preserve them to maintain safety and quality.

Fish and shellfish provide a source of high-quality protein to the diet. Due to the demand and popularity of fish and shellfish, many are commercially cultured and processed. Processed fish and shellfish are checked for quality and graded. Fish includes saltwater and freshwater finfish such as catfish, trout, halibut, salmon, tuna, herring, and eel. Shellfish include a group of mollusks and crustaceans like clams, oysters, lobsters, crabs, shrimp, and crayfish. Fish and shellfish are provided by commercial fishing and aquaculture producers. Fish and shellfish provide a high-quality protein and are also a good source of B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus, iodine, and potassium. Fish spoil easily, so they require strict processing and preservation procedures to maintain quality. Fish processing operations adhere to standards in the Good Manufacturing Practice Code and processors use the HACCP method to monitor quality. After inspection, grading determines the quality. Grade A indicates a product of high quality that is uniform in size, free of blemishes and defects, in excellent condition, with good flavor and odor. Fish and shellfish are marketed fresh or frozen. Fish can be marketed as whole, dressed, pandressed, filleted, steaks, sticks, or nuggets. Fish protein concentrate or fish flour are fish by-products used for humans. Roe is fish eggs used for human food also. Surimi represents a new manufactured product made from pieces of fish.

Cereal grains and legumes supply energy (starch) and protein. As a food, they are consumed as seeds, food science develops techniques to process these seeds into many useM products.

As a food, cereal grains, legumes and oilseeds are consumed as seeds, but more often they are consumed in some processed form such as flour, syrup, or vegetable protein extract Corn refining and soybean extraction provide a wide variety of products for food and technical uses. Cereal grains and legume seeds, and products from these, are used as food for people throughout the world. Cereal grains provide mainly starch and some protein. Legumes provide mainly protein, oil, and some starch. Starch has unique properties that are used in foods. Seeds of the grains and legumes are used to produce flour. These flours are used to produce a variety of other food products. Corn refining and soybean extraction separate the corn seed and soybeans, respectively, into component parts and convert these to high-value products. These processes are some of the best examples of value added agriculture and the application of food science.

Fruits and vegetables include a wide variety of edible parts. Food science seeks to maintain the quality and safety of fresh fruits and vegetables, and to develop new, safe, healthy food products from fruits and vegetables.

Fruits, vegetables, and other plant tissues either directly or indirectly supply all foods to humans. An estimated 270,000 plant species exist. The number of crops that fit into humans' dietary picture is probably between 1,000 and 2,000 species. Fruits and vegetables take in a wide variety of edible plant parts. Fruits include apples, pears, peaches, apricots, plums, cherries, bananas, oranges, tangerines, and grapes. The term vegetable includes many different parts of plants, including some fruits. They vary widely in carbohydrate and protein content. Many have a high water content. Fruits and vegetables are a good source of many vitamins and minerals. Because many parts of plants are eaten as fruits or vegetables, an understanding of plant tissues is critical to food scientists. Harvesting of fruits and vegetables can be affected by variety, soil type, water, temperature, and season. Climacteric fruits produce ethylene gas during ripening; nonclimacteric fruits do not. Fruits and vegetables get their characteristic color from numerous pigments. In general, water transport in plant tissues influences the texture of fruits and vegetables; flavors and aromas are due to compounds such as aldehydes, alcohols, ketones, esters, organic acids, and sulfur compounds. The USDA assigns quality grades to both fruits and vegetables. These quality grades determine the eventual use of the fruit or vegetable. Post-harvest care is critical to maintaining the optimal quality of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are sold fresh, canned, and frozen. Most of these processes are automated. By-products from fruit and vegetable processing are often used for livestock feed. Biotechnology offers the promise of providing h i t s and vegetables to meet new consumer demands.

Fats and oils from plants and animals contain 2.25 times more energy than carbohydrates or proteins. Food science deals with their high energy content and with simple lipids such as the triglycerides that make up fat, butter, shortening, and oil.

Like proteins and carbohydrates, fats and oils are composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, yet they contain 2.25 times more energy per unit of weight. In foods and food processing, they contribute unique characteristics. Some foods such as butter, cooking oils, and shortening are pure fat. Other foods make use of the properties of fats. Chemical characteristics of fats influence their properties. The function and properties of fats in foods are important. For example, fats can be used for textural qualities, emulsions, tenderizers, heat transfer, aeration, flavor, and dispersion. Fats and oils are extracted from plants and animals. Rendering extracts fats from animal products. Expellers and solvents extract fats from plants. Extracted fats undergo additional processing such as degurmning, alkali refining, bleaching, winterization, hydrogenization, deodorization, and interesterification. Chemical tests such as iodine value, rancidity, melting point, smoke point, and saponification provide information about function and stability. Because fats contain more calories per pound than carbohydrates or proteins, the food industry continues to reduce the fat content of foods or to search for fat substitutes.

3. Describe fatty acids and how they relate to saturated and unsaturated fats.

Fatty acids are chains of 4 to 28 carbon atoms with the carbons in the chain joined by single or double bonds depending on the number of hydrogen atoms attached. If a fatty acid has all the hydrogens possible attached to the carbons in the chain, it is said to be a saturated fatty acid. If some of the carbons in the chain are joined by double bonds, thus reduo ing the number of hydrogen atoms, the fatty acid is called unsaturated.

4. Name the two methods of extracting oil from plants.

The oil is removed from the plant source by mechanical presses and expellers that squeeze the oil fkom oilseeds. Another method is the solvent extraction method. A nontoxic fat solvent such as hexane is percolated through the cracked seeds. The oil is then distilled fkom the solvent, and the solvent is reused.

Introduction to Food Science point; the more double bonds, the lower the melting point; and cis fatty acids have a lower melting point than do trans.

8. Name and discuss the two chemical tests on fats and oils.

Chemical tests can determine the degree of unsaturation of the fatty acids in a fat This is expressed as the iodine value of the fat The test is based on the amount of iodine absorbed by a fat on a per 100 grams basis. The higher the iodine value, the greater the degree of unsaturation. Another chemical test yields the peroxide value. This indicates the degree of oxidation that has taken place in a fat or oil. The test is based on the amount of peroxides that form at the site of double bonds.
9. List six sources of fats and oils.

Candy and Con


An understanding of food science helps combine sugar or similar substances with other compatible ingredients such as fruits, nuts, or chocolate to produce a wide variety of candies and confectionery.

The word "candy" does not cover only pure-sugar concoctions, but also includes an array of tasty confectioneries combining sugar or similar substances with other compatible ingredients such as fruits, nuts, or chocolate. Some people may not like the idea, but candy is a food. Its basic elements are included in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Pyramid. Some candies such as those containing milk or nuts do offer some beneficial food values. Candy or confectionery are divided into those in which sugar is the main ingredient and those based on chocolate. Further, candies can be classified as crystalline and noncrystalline. The processes of creating an invert sugar and caramelization produce unique flavors and characteristics. The relationship between sucrose concentration and the boiling point determines the percentage of water and sugar in the final product. Interfering agents interfere with the formation of sucrose crystals and provide secondary properties to candies. Sugar-based sweeteners developed from cornstarch brought about major changes in the food industry. These sweeteners include corn syrup, maltodextrin, dextrose monohydrate, and dextrose anhydrous. High-fructose corn syrups are produced when cornstarch is hydrolyzed by an invertase. Again, high-fructose corn syrup revolutionized the food industry. Cocoa is the ground, defatted, roasted cacao kernels. Federal standards define cocoa and other chocolate products including milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and baking chocolate. Much of candy manufacturing, including chocolate manufacturing, relies on automation, and precision instrumentation. Sugar substitutes and high-intensity sweeteners are often used to reduce the calories in candy and confectionery. Labeling requirements for candy and confectionery are the same as for other foods.

Introduction to Food Science



Using science and technology, the food industry creates and markets a wide variety of beveragesincluding carbonated; nonalcoholic; noncarbonated; alcoholic; coffee; teas; and water. Some beverages are marketed for their health benefits.

People drink beverages for their food value, thirst quenching, and stimulating effects. Also people drink because consumption is pleasurable, and some drinks are considered healthhl. The food industry creates a wide variety of beverages. This includes carbonated, nonalcoholic beverages, with different flavors and with nutritive and nonnutritive sweeteners. Carbonation in beverages provides their zest and sparkle. Recently, the popularity of carbonated beverages has given way to new products created by the food industry such as vitamin-fortified h i t drinks, scientifically formulated sports drinks, nutritionally enhanced beverages, and water. Bottled water represents a profitable, fast-growing segment of the beverage industry. Fermentation of carbohydrates from corn, rye, rice, molasses, wheat, potatoes, barley, agave, and fruit juices creates alcoholic beverages such as beer, wine, whiskey, vodka, rum, sake, and tequila. Fermentation by yeast changes sugar to alcohol; the taste of the beverage depends on the carbohydrate source and the process. Coffee comes from roasted beans of a small tree. Coffee flavor is determined by the variety and length of roasting time. Coffee substitutes are produced from roasted grains and grain products in combination with other flavors. Tea comes from the processed leaves of a plant. The type of tea produced depends on the enzymatic action on tea leaves. Both tea and coffee have been produced in an instant form. Tea has been bottled as a beverage. Herbal teas come from many plants and not just the leaves: flowers, roots, bark, and seeds of herbs all can be used in a blend for herbal tea. Herbal teas are enjoyed because of their wide ranging tastes, and they are often recommended as beneficial alternatives to coffee, tea, and carbonated drinks.

Environmen and Process




Solid wastes and wastewater from food processing are environmental concerns, and food science and technology create methods for dealing with these concerns.

The food-processing industry uses technology to reduce the quantity of high-moisture-content solid wastes generated by washing, cleaning, extracting, and the separation of undesirable solids from fruits and vegetables processing. Research in this area continues to develop ways to reduce the volume and water content of solid wastes, to increase the value of solid wastes sold as animal feed, and to convert the solid wastes into other by-products. Food processing produces solid wastes. To remain environmentally friendly, food processors seek ways of disposing of or using solid wastes. Because food processing requires large quantities of potable water and produces large quantities of wastewater, this creates other environmental issues. Food processors must clean up wastewater. They also try to reduce the amount of water used in processing to lower the wastewater production. Responsibility for disposing of solid wastes and for treating and reducing wastewater resides with the food processor to meet environmental standards, laws, and restrictions.

Introduction to Food Science

Food Sa


Food safety concerns include pesticides, additives, and spoilage, but a major focus for many food scientists and consumers is on microorganisms in food.

Food safety is a very broad topic. Pesticides, herbicides, chemical additives, and spoilage are all of concern, but food scientists, food processors, and consumers focus most on microbiological quality. Microorganisms pose a challenge to the food industry, and most food processes are designed with microbial quality in mind. Microorganisms are too small to be seen with the unaided eye and have the ability to reproduce rapidly. Many of them produce toxins and can cause infections. For these reasons, the microbiological quality of the food is scrutinized closely. Microorganisms cause foodborne illnesses that vary in severity. Many people call foodborne illnesses 24-hour flu, upset stomach, or diarrhea. However, for the very young and the old, these foodborne illnesses can be life-threatening. Microorganisms of concern include viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi. To control microorganisms, food scientists must understand factors affecting microbial growth. These include pH, oxygen availability, nutrient availability, moisture availability, storage temperature, lag time, and generation time. Because foods cannot be tested for all microorganisms, the presence of E. coli serves as an indicator. The detection of E. coli is accomplished by the standard plate count. The goal of proper processing and handling is to keep microbial loads to a minimum to provide safe, high-quality food. During processing, microbial destruction and control are achieved by heat or chemicals. Also during processing, cleaning before sanitization is an important part of maintaining safe food. Depending on the type of processing, appropriate and approved sanitation procedures must be followed. The USDA, FDA, and EPA are all involved in regulatory considerations of food safety. HACCP is a food safety program developed for the astronauts more than 30 years ago. HACCP involves seven steps and is now being used to monitor and control foodborne diseases.

Government regulation and labeling of foods represent significant issues in the food industry. Food science helps organizations, government, and businesses address these issues.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and legislative acts, regulate foods and the labeling of foods and food laws to protect the consumer. Additionally, many states and cities have food laws. Food labeling provides basic information about the ingredients in, and the nutritional value of, food products so that consumers can make informed choices in the marketplace. The FDA, operating under the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, regulates the labeling for all foods except meat and poultry. The USDA under the federal Meat Inspection Act regulates meat and poultry products. Additional federal acts cover specific foods. Recent changes in the food label provide consumers with more accurate and more u s e l l nutritional information. This information is provided on the nutrition panel. Some of the components of the food label are mandatory and some are voluntary. DRVs establish dietary standards for labels. Guidelines for labels promote the uniform definitions for words such as free, low, lean, high, reduced, and less. Additionally, label regulations address how and when certain health claims can be made for foods. Finally, food-labeling requirements also address ingredient labeling.

Food science can help solve world hunger.


World hunger is a serious problem with no apparent solution. Awareness, many times, is the first step in solving a problem. About 800 million people are hungry. In fact, if all the world's undernourished people were gathered in one place, their population would be greater than every continent except Asia. Each year people die from hunger or problems caused by hunger. Many of these are children under 5 years of age. One word explains hunger-poverty. Poverty is the state of one who lacks a usual or socially acceptable amount of money or material possessions. This means that if someone has so few things or so little money that their society says they are poor, then they live in poverty. We have shown that there is enough food produced. We have also shown that every country has the resources to rid itself of hunger. But often people do not have the money needed to buy the food that is produced. Poverty, hunger, and malnutrition are some of the principal causes of accelerated migration from rural to urban areas in developing countries. The largest population shift of all times is now underway. Harmful seasonal and midyear instability of food supplies can be reduced. Food security progress should include targeting on minimizing the vulnerability to, and impact of, climate fluctuations and pests and diseases. Unless national governments and the international community address the many causes of food insecurity, the number of hungry and malnourished people will remain very high in developing countries, particularly in Africa, south of the Sahara, and sustainable food security will not be achieved. The resources required for investment will be generated mostly from domestic, private, and public organizations and groups.

5. What three things does world hunger usually mean?

malnutrition, undernutrition, famine
6. List the seven steps identified by the United Nations for eliminating hunger.

Step 1-Many countries that are suf'fering from hunger have to buy a lot of the things that they need from other countries. The countries that s a e r from hunger need to learn to do more things by themselves. This way they will not have to buy as much fkom other countries. Step 2-Many developing countries have rules and regulations for the farmers. These rules need to be checked to make sure that farmers will still want to produce food. These regulations should make sure that the farmers get a fair amount of money for their food. The farmers also need help to use their land and water wisely Step 3-Once the food is h a r vested, it has to be stored until it is needed. When the food is needed, it has to be taken where it is needed and when it is needed most. Both the storage and the transportation of the food need to be improved. Step &The food aid has to be checked to make sure it gets to the hungry people. Because of the food aid, the country's production needs to be checked. The country must not be allowed to produce less food because of the food aid. Step 5-Developed and developing countries need to work together more. This will make it easier for them to trade. They can also make the food prices stay the same longer. Step 6Countries need to be kept f'rom using too much food. They also need to keep fkom wasting food. Step 7-Many developing countries owe a lot of money. These countries need to pay


Introduction to ~ o o Science d off their debts. This can be done by paying back more money they make on exports (things that they sell to other countries). Because these countries owe a lot of money, it makes it m ~ l t for them to borrow money.

7. Define food security.

Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.
8. List the four common misconceptions about the causes of hunger.

Not enough food available to feed everyone; population is too large; governments cause hunger; foreign aid helps eliminate hunger

Careers in Food Science
.... . . . . . . .... .. . .. . . . ..


Jobs or careers in the food science industry range from those very closely tied to the industry to those that support the food industry.

In terms of value of shipments, food processing is the largest manufacturing industry in the United States. The major technological support of the food processing industry comes from food scientists, technicians, and other industry employees who use their training and experience to convert raw foods into quality products quickly, efficiently, and with a minimum of waste. They are directly concerned with the industry's high standards of quality, new manufacturing methods, new preservation techniques, and new packaging materials. A knowledge of chemistry,microbiology, engineering, and other basic and applied sciences plays an important part in maintaining the flavor, color, texture, nutritional value, and safety of our food. The goal of education and training is primarily to become employable and stay employable-to get and keep a job, career, or to run a successful business. The world of work requires people who can read, write, do math, and communicate. Rapidly changing technology has made this even more critical. Also, the modern workplace now looks for people who possess thinking skills. Even with a solid set of basic skills, future employees also need to relate to other people; must be able to use information; need to understand the concept of systems; and know how to use technology. Old-fashioned ideas like responsibility, self-esteem, sociability,self-management, and integrity are not out of date. Jobs or careers in the food industry range from those very closely tied to the industry to those that support the food industry. In general, potential job or career areas in the food industry include production management, product development, food engineer, microbiology, quality control, research, technical representative, sales, and service. Education and training in the food industry vary from on-the-job training to high school and college degrees and certificates. After training and education, finding and getting the right job or career may still be a challenge. Good resources exist for locating a job. Still, one of the best resources is personal contact. Wellwritten letters of inquiry, application forms, a clear eye-catching rksumk, and being prepared for the job interview will help secure a job.
