Food Chemistry

Food chemistry is the study of both biological and non-biological elements of food, chemical processes and their interactions. It is also related to organic chemistry as it deals with the identification and quantification of components of food, such as carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, water, vitamins, and dietary minerals.

It is the study of chemical processes and interactions of all biological and non-biological components of foods. Food chemistry is concerned with analytical, biochemical, chemical, physical, nutritional, and toxicological aspects of foods and food ingredients. It also involves the study and development of food additives that can be used to preserve the food. It overlaps with biochemistry in that it deals with the food components.  Food chemistry can be applied in the analysis of dietary content to monitor or improve nutrition, or the determination of levels of contaminants to ensure food safety.

It also involves the research and synthesis of nutrients and preservatives, as well as other additives that can be used to preserve the quality of food or modify its color, flavor, and taste. Food chemistry knowledge aids in the creation of proper food handling techniques as well as good manufacturing practices.
