Food Chemistry

Food chemistry encompasses the comprehensive exploration of both biological and non-biological constituents of food, including the intricate chemical processes they undergo and their interplay. It shares a close affinity with organic chemistry, focusing on the identification and precise measurement of essential food components, including carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, water, vitamins, and dietary minerals.

This field delves into a wide spectrum of aspects related to food and its constituents, encompassing analytical, biochemical, chemical, physical, nutritional, and toxicological dimensions. Moreover, it entails the examination and formulation of food additives employed for preservation purposes. Food chemistry significantly overlaps with biochemistry, primarily due to its in-depth exploration of food components. It finds practical applications in assessing dietary content to monitor and enhance nutrition while also assessing contaminant levels to ensure food safety

Furthermore, food chemistry plays a pivotal role in the research and synthesis of nutrients, preservatives, and various additives aimed at preserving food quality and modifying its attributes, such as color, flavor, and taste. The knowledge derived from food chemistry serves as the foundation for developing proper food handling techniques and adhering to stringent manufacturing practices.
