To provide a science-based holistic approach to colloidal, structural and functional properties of formulated food, its ingredients, and components.

Learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding
For a passing grade the student must

• know how the properties of different materials or formulations can be used to develop functional and healthy foods

• describe the food structure on different levels with different degrees of complexity

• be able to describe how different components of formulations interact and give rise to functionality

• know the colloidal properties and its role in various food systems

Competences and skills
For a passing grade the student must

• have the ability to critically identify, formulate and manage issues relating colloidal properties and texture of food formulations

• orally and written form discuss and report how different raw materials or ingredients can be used to develop functional food

• be able to explain, analyze and systematically highlight the importance of the formulation of food structure, content and bioavailability of the nutrient

• have the ability to independently and in group plan, report and discuss the findings and conclusions of practical sessions

Judgement and approach
For a passing grade the student must

• be able to independently seek and evaluate information in scientific articles

• show ability for teamwork and collaboration in different groups
