Food Science Laboratory Manual
For courses in Introductory Food Science, Food Preparation where chemistry is required, and for Experimental Foods.
This practical lab manual combines an experimental approach to the study of ingredient function with preparation methods to acquaint the student with a wide variety of quality products. It introduces the use of fat replacers in frozen desserts, salad dressings, and batters and doughs, and includes the use of gums and stabilizers in some products. A wide variety of preparation methods for fruits, vegetables, and legumes is included. This book is intended to be used as a supplement for Foods and Food Science texts, especially Charley and Weaver's latest edition.
- Principles emphasize the functionality of ingredients by using variables in formula or method to interpret the scientific aspects of food preparation directing the student to the principle rather than to recipe. Pg.___
- A wide variety of foods, their preparation, and experiments are included to give students with little knowledge the ability to develop skills and observe quality. Pg.___
- The manual includes experiments utilizing modified starches, gums, stabilizers, and fat replacers that illustrate the current use of these ingredients in industry- produced products. Pg.___
- Study questions follow each section of laboratory experiments to guide students in forming conclusions and directing assessment of experiments and food quality. Pg.___
