Subject of course

Composition of the most important foods (milk and milk products, eggs, meat and meat products, fish, edible fats and oils, corn and corn products, legumes, fruits, vegetables, potable water, alcoholic drinks). Possible reactions in foods during production, preservation and storage (e.g. Maillard reaction). Technological methods and processes in the production, preparation and storage of foods (mechanical, physical, chemical, biotechnological processes, treatment at high and low temperatures). Food specific application of technological processes for food of plant and animal origin: milk and milk products, egg products, meat and meat products, fish and fish products, fat and oils, cereals and farinaceous food, vegetable and fruit products, sugar, alkaloid-containing food. Introduction to the Austrian and European food law, administration of food control.
