“Food is not only essential for living but an important factor that affects the quality of our lives. This field of study provides me with different perspectives of how food can influence our lives and also how we can manipulate processing in order to achieve the organoleptic and nutritional properties of safe food products.” Wenyun Liu, MSc Food Science and Nutrition
