They ensure that the rest of us eat the safest, tastiest food possible.
Food science technologists generally work in three main areas:
♦ In applied research and development, they assist in the development of new processing methods and new or improved foods to meet customer requests for healthier and safer foods.
♦ In quality control or assurance, they check raw ingredients for freshness, maturity or stability for processing, and check finished products for safety, quality and nutritional value.
♦ In processing plants, they develop production specifications, schedule processing operations, and evaluate processing and storage operations.
