Food Science
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

What is Food Science?

Food Science deals with the processing of raw agricultural produce into food products that are acceptable for human consumption. A Food Scientist posse​sses the skills necessary to convert these raw materials into the safe, attractive food products and beverages available on our ​supermarket shelves. Food Scientists constantly seek to improve existing techniques by which new products are developed, processed, packaged, stored and transported.

Food Science is an exciting field of study that applies sciences such as Chemistry, Biochemistry and Microbiology to discover ways to improve the taste, nutrition and quality of the world's food supply. You will also learn about food preservation and processing, food analysis, product development, food packaging and the implementation of food quality and safety systems.
