BCH306 – Food and Nutrition Biochemistry


Akpovona, E. Ambrose

COURSE SUMMARY:
Food and Nutritional Biochemistry is the branch of biochemistry that explains the meaning and composition of food. It examines food from the point they are obtained from their sources (crops and animals) to the point where they are processed (converted to other forms). The course also examines the methods of food storage especially of our local harvests (Nigeria and West Africa in extension) and what ways these can be processed to increase storage life. It examines food at macro and micro level, and how the constituents of food could be determined proximately using standard approved methods, analysis that are done to identify adulteration of food substances.
