Guelph houses one of the leading Food Science Departments within Canada and is recognized throughout the world. When one is asked to describe Food Science the thoughts of cooking comes to mind although in reality the subject is a combination of all the pure sciences. Indeed, a Food Scientist acquires knowledge of microbiology, sensory analysis, biochemistry, chemistry, physics and engineering. The essential role of a Food Scientist is focused on how to enhance the quality, safety, functionality and nutrition of foods.

This is reflective in the research performed within the Department of Food Science at Guelph.
