|Bromatology As A Field Of Study by Richbee(m): 4:56pm On Apr 11, 2013|
Bromatology otherwise known as food science is a field of study that combines the science of biology, physics and chemistry to study the nature of food. Its guiding principle is to ensure quality in processed food. This means that its the duty of the food scientist to ensure that the required quality of semi processed food are kept and to ensure that the consumer's health is protected whilst consuming such product. Today, there are numerous aspects embedded in this field. There is the food biochemistry that studies to the latter, the composition of food. They give in concrete form, the type of carbohydrate, protein, fat etc that are present in such food. The food analyst carry out proximates to ensure that the consumer gets what he really is paying for. The food nutritionist are those who formulate diets using local raw materials. They also help to curb the issue of food insecurity. Also there is the food microbiologist who studies each food properties, their agent of spoilage, and provides a preservation means. The food technologist that designs machine using the appropriate material as regards to the type of food. There also is the food biotechnologist who are also called genetic engineers. They manipulate the genes of crops to obtain a desired trait in such product. Other sub-divisions include, food engineering, food physics, sensory evaluation, product development, food marketing and so on. The major focus in this field is to help in having a food secured nation by reducing spoilage in our crops, creating variety of processed food using these crops, providing means of preservation and the rest. We don't get much attention as other field of study, but in our own way, we are making this country a better place. So school children, follow your heart. Medicine, engineering and the rest aint the only science field. Do researches and come up with self made reasons to be who you wanna be. Parents, pls let your children decide what they wanna be. Just guide them. Thanks.
