Content

This unit begins with an investigation of the current scientific literature that examines the proposed mechanisms by which functional foods are able to influence the major metabolic systems of the body with a positive result on overall health. This section will encompass the emerging field of epigenetics which describes the ability of the environment to affect the transcription of our DNA into proteins. Students will then explore the commercial side of producing functional foods beginning with the small-scale in-house development all the way to the large scale bio-processing of functional foods. This will include a discussion of the regulatory issues attached to food production.
