What is Food Science?

Food Science is science applied to food. So, food scientists study the chemistry, biology, and physics of your food.
Food science picks up where agricultural sciences wrap up. Once the food has been made and is ready to be eaten, it hands over to the nutritional sciences.

So, as a food scientist, I can tell you what happens when you bake a scone, why your red cabbage changes color, or how a beer fermentation process works. But, I’m not an expert when it comes to health and nutritional advice.
