Food Technology in simpler terms is the application of food science in manufacturing food products, which are safe, wholesome and nutritious. The food processing industry covers a range of food products. These include the basic or primary foods, such as wheat and rice products, sugar, oil and pulses, and the processes for converting them into edible form.
After a course in Food Technology, there are a number of job prospects in the following areas: The food processing companies which cater to manufacturing the right quality of food products and the packaging companies which deal with the manner in which the product must be packaged for preservation. Research laboratories evaluate and analyze the food ingredients present in the products. Public sector undertakings in the Department of food also recruit people in this field.
