Food Biochemistry Division

Food Biochemistry Division

Food Chemistry / Food Microbiology / Food Process Engineering / Food Biochemistry

Focusing on the studies of how processing or storage might biochemically affect the nutritional value of foods and their biochemistry in human body (in vivo/in vitroresearch). It also involves the study of basic and applied aspects of biochemistry on the toxicity and anti-nutritional factors of food components and how to control, metabolisms of macro and micro ingredients in human body, molecular biology and immunology of food components.
