About

This Food Quality, Safety and Nutrition with Professional Studies degree programme at Queen's University Belfast is about gaining the knowledge and understanding of three key areas in relation to food production and consumption.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Food Quality concerns the ‘fitness for purpose’ of our food in terms of appearance (eg colour and surface qualities, texture, flavour and odour) and how these can be improved.

Food Safety considers the physical, microbiological and chemical aspects of our food, which may be harmful to human health and how these can be minimised.

Nutrition concerns the nutrient supply from foods necessary to support the human body in health and during ill health throughout all life stages.

This Food Quality, Safety and Nutrition with Professional Studies degree programme at Queen's University Belfast emphasises the inter-relationship between these areas and their equal importance in food production.
