Nutrition and Food Science

Learning outcome targets

Ensuring the quality and safety of bioproducts (food, ingredients, cosmetics, etc.) is a major challenge for our society. The development of these products can be optimised provided there is a better understanding of the determinants of epidemiological profiles in populations, a good knowledge of the nature and role of the molecules used in their composition, and the ability to control their behaviour during processing, use and consumption.
The course addresses, In particular, recent scientific and methodological issues related to the design and formulation of food and other bioproducts, their processing, the relationship between food and health, nutrition, health risk analysis and toxicology related to food and the environment.
The course has the dual objective of guiding students towards the commercial and industrial sectors, as well as research, monitoring and assessment bodies. By the end of the course, students will have acquired methodologies and knowledge enabling them to work immediately within companies and public, associative and private organisations, or to apply as doctoral students in a discipline related to one of these sectors.
