This subject - laboratory training - it follows previous theoretical training of subject: Food Process Quality Control (S321001). Laboratory training offers practical knowledge in control analytical methods applied in food technology and packaging. Laboratory works will focus on monitoring composition and quality control of food raw materials and products. The contents, quality and physical properties of food ingredients (moisture, starch, proteins, lipids, organic acids and others) will be monitored in food materials (such as molasses, sugar, confectionery, mill products, fruits, vegetables, meat and dairy products) . The rheological and textural properties of foods as well as the functional properties of food packaging will be assessed. Microbiological assessment (basic microbiological analysis, identification of unknown bacteria in food, determination of microorganisms of starter and protective cultures, especially lactic acid bacteria) will be performed for selected food and cosmetic products.
Aim of the course
Last update: Sluková Marcela doc. Ing. Ph.D. (26.01.2018)

Students will be able to:

analyze food and food ingredients by various analytical and special methods and techniques that are applied in operational practice;

assess the quality of raw materials and intermediates in terms of processing processes used;

evaluate the quality of the final food product;

to evaluate the food on a microbiological basis.
