Developing new food, beverages and drink products is a complex process - requiring knowledge of ingredients, packaging materials, processing techniques, legislation and consumer demands and preferences. The difference between product development   and research development and is that research and development is the conception phase in the product life cycle, while product development is the entire process of creating, designing, and marketing new products or existing products with new features.

Food hygiene & safety is a major focus of food microbiology. Numerous agents of disease, pathogens can easily transmitted via food, including bacteria, and viruses. Microbial toxins are also possible contaminants of food. Finally, bacteriophages that only infect bacteria can be used to kill bacterial pathogens. There are simple and fast detection of bacteria, with a use of media containing chromogenic substrate such as Salmon-GAL. Certain enzymes, produced by some particular bacteria, cleave these substrates, resulting in the different coloration of specific bacteria colonies. This allows to clearly seeing the presence of the targeted microorganism, observed as a clearly observable color change. Most chromogenic media is intended for authentic detection of pathogenic bacteria.

Food science is the study of food incorporating basic sciences such as biological and physical sciences to study the nature, deterioration and processing of food. Food technology is an area of food science that deals with the production processes that make foods. Early scientific research into food technology concentrated on food preservation.

Food science and technology research Focus and Scope Covers:

•                             Food Packaging and Processing

•                             Food Storage and Preservation

•                             Food Safety and Defense

Quality assurance is a set of process for ensuring quality. Quality assurance is a procedure of inhibiting mistakes and defects in manufactured products and avoiding problems when delivering products to food market. The terms "quality assurance" and "quality control" are often used interchangeably to refer to ensuring the quality of a service or product.

Food engineering is a multidisciplinary field which combines microbiology, applied physical sciences, chemistry, engineering for food and related industries. Food Engineering is the field where the science and engineering are used to process the food, preservation of food and storing of food in order to improve it's quality, texture, taste, smell to add value to the product.

•             Aseptic processing

•             Food rheology

The term food preservation refers to a number of techniques used to prevent food from spoiling. Food preservation prevents the growth of harmful microorganisms, as well as slowing the oxidation of fats that cause rancidity. Food preservation incorporates processes that inhibit food deterioration, such as the enzymatic browning reaction in apples after they are cut during food preparation. Maintaining or creating nutritional value, texture and flavour is an important aspect of food preservation.

Food authentication is one of the most important sub discipline in food safety and quality control in every country. Regulatory authorities, food processors, retailers, and consumers are interested in knowing the quality, origin and nutrient value of foods. Food authentication is analytical procedure that validates label information about the food origin and production process.

Agricultural technology is specifically about developing new technologies to expand food production. A main focus of agri-tech is reducing the impact of farming on the environment, but it can also increase productivity, profit, or health and safety. Agricultural and food scientists play an crucial role in maintaining and expanding the nation's food supply. Food scientists and technologists use chemistry, biology, and other sciences to study the basic elements of food & beverages. They analyse the nutritional value of food, discover new food sources, and research ways to make processed foods safe and healthy.

Some of the main aspects of agri-tech are:

•             Creation of new food and drink productions

•             Crop management, including weeds, pests and diseases

•             Water reduction

•             Plant and animal health, nutrition and modification

•             Agri-robotics

 

Food and Beverages have a vital impact on diet. Eating healthy food maintains good health and reduces the risk of developing certain diseases. A healthy diet incorporates a variety of foods, especially foods with high nutritional quality. Food nourishes the body & mind. In addition to providing nutrients, healthy eating provides us with an opportunity to share with family and friends. Hence, healthy eating is a source of daily pleasure.

Have you ever walked into a shop and just bought something simply because you found the packaging so attractive?

The utmost function of packaging is preservation and protection from external contamination. This function involves extension of shelf life, retardation of deterioration and maintenance of quality and safety of packaged food. Packaging provide food  protection from environmental hazard such as heat, oxygen, light, the presence or absence of moisture, pressure, enzymes, spurious odors, microorganisms, insects, dirt and dust particles, gaseous emissions etc. All of these main cause for deterioration of foods and beverages. Extended shelf life includes preventing of microbial, enzymatic and biochemical reactions through various strategies such as temperature control; moisture control; addition of chemicals such as salt, sugar, natural acids, carbon dioxide, removal of oxygen or a combination of these with effective packaging.

 

·         The latest innovations in sustainable food packaging

By the use of Food technology, Food system has become more accessible than ever before. The whole system includes production and harvesting of agriculture products, transportation and distribution, raw material storage, manufacturing of food, selling the product to the consumers, service and preparation of food at home.

·         Importance of food technology in medical Practice

Developments in food system, food science and food technology have accelerated the production and availability of healthy beverages & nutrient foods. Consumers may acquire health benefits from some products, but they may also suffer adverse health effects and economic losses. Despite medicine, which is administered on the recommendation of health professionals, foods are chosen directly by the consumer. Food labelling has a major role in providing consumers with proper information when choosing the desired products.
