Semester: 4 / Spring
Lectures/Classes: 15 / 30 hours
Field of study: Food Technology and Human Nutrition
Study cycle: 1st cycle
Type of course: optional
Prerequisites: General organic and inorganic chemistry, food chemistry

Short description: It enables students to introduce modern methods used in food analysis. The lecture includes a discussion of the quantitative determination of triglycerides, carbohydrates, proteins, as well as determination of volatile compounds by gas chromatography.
Full description: Specific chemical and physical properties of food saccharides, lipids, protein systems (milk, meat, vegetables). Methods of extractions, precipitations, distillations, purifications in preparation of samples in the analysis of food products. The theoretical aspects and practical applications of a number of analytical techniques used in the food industry and in food research laboratories (gas chromatography, spectrophotometry, polarymetry).
