About this Unit
Food provides sustenance to life, nutrition for good health, enjoyment and cultural identity. Students will gain an awareness of the history and cultural significance of food and its traditions in Australia and around the world. This unit introduces the basic principles for understanding the science behind food; its composition, chemical, physical and functional characteristics. Fruits and vegetables, cereal, meat and dairy products will be covered, how they are processed and impacts on food quality and nutrition. Current issues will be discussed, such as world food supply, food–borne disease, diet and health, and new trends in food. Students will need to attend the Hawkesbury Campus for Lectures and Practicals.
