About this Unit
This unit introduces students to theories and practices underpinning new product development, including idea generation, market research and product lifecycles. Students will apply emerging technologies, new ingredients and other innovative concepts relating to food preservation and food evaluation to research and develop new food products. Students will work on formulation design, assessment of ingredient and additive functions, effects of processing, optimization of quality and acceptability of foods. They will assess product packaging and storage stability, along with developing a food safety plan. They will also produce a final product specification and labelling requirements compliant with current food regulations.
