Contact person: prof. dr hab. Agnieszka Tajner-Czopek
Short description: he aim of the subject is to acquaint students with the material of the food analysis. The lectures include topics relating to sensory analysis and organoleptic evaluation, food quality, standardization, as well as techniques for the determination of selected chemical components (tj.: water, starch, protein) and quality characteristics of food. At the laboratory exercises, students have the opportunity to assess the quality of selected raw materials and food products, the determination of the physicochemical properties of the foods, using appropriate methods.
Full description: Knowledge of laboratory equipment: glassware, reagents, and apparatus. Acquainted with the concepts of sensory analysis, organoleptic evaluation, quality and standardization. Evaluation of physical and chemical properties of selected food products. Techniques for determination of selected chemical components and quality characteristics of food using suitable equipment.
