Learning outcomes

Aim of the course is to provide the students scientific knowledges and technical skills required to set up a new food product development process. The course requires basic knowledge of food chemistry, food microbiology and food processing and preservation technologies, as well as the ability to understand their interaction within a food product. Through frontal lessons, practical training and visit to food industries, the student will be guided to understand and use the principles of food product development, taking into account the technical, legal, economic and social aspects. The course comprises 5 CFU of frontal teaching and 1 CFU devoted to discussing and analyzing real case studies and to conducting technical visits to food production plants.

Program

FAVATI: the technical basis for food product design. Water activity, control, and prediction; modeling using BET and GABB equations. Food additives; nature, function, and technical choice. Aroma Compounds, Flavors, Colours; characteristics, properties, technical choice. Blanching, an overview. Primary and secondary shelf-life. Shelf life study and prediction. Statistical process control, basics on control cards, different types, and uses. Tools and techniques for more successful new product development.

SIMONATO: Gluten free product. The gluten-free market. What is gluten? Molecular structure and functionality of gluten in bread, pasta, and snack. Challenges to overcome when using gluten-free flours. Functional ingredients for the production of gluten free bread: Hydrocolloids, Proteins, Sourdough.

Examination Methods

Oral exam - Initially the student will be asked to discuss one of the topics of the course that he considered of the utmost interest. Afterwards, the lecturer will present a practical problem that may be faced in the real working life and will evaluate how the candidate will organize and utilize the scientific and technical skills acquired during the study to highlight a possible solution to the problem. In this way the student will be oriented to study for acquiring not a mere "theoretical knowledge" but a "practical" one. The student will be graded over a score of 30 points, being 18 the minimum score to pass the exam. No different evaluation modalities are planned for students who have attended or not the theoretical and/or the practical part of the course.

Students are not required to take a specific exam for the practical part of the course. However, the acquired knowledge and skills will be evaluated within the oral exam set for the theoretical part of the course, taking into account the students’ capability to adapt and use in the real productive world the acquired theoretical knowledge and skills.
The exam will be carried out using the ZOOM platform for students having the right to require this evaluation mode.
