About the Class
NUTR 241 Culinary Nutrition Science explores the scientific principles behind modern culinary techniques that transform raw foodstuffs into prepared foods with both appealing and nutritional value. Looking at foodstuffs as combinations of solids, liquids, and gases, students analyze the physical and chemical forces that contribute to creating an edible and desirable food product. Students also become familiar with the standard methods of sensory evaluation of foods.
