Hours & Credits
OverviewThe aim of this subject is to provide students with an understanding of the chemical structure of food components (natural materials of plant and animal origin plus additives) and the underlying biochemistry. The fate of these components in terms of their biological (enzymatic) and chemical degradation when consumed is explored in the context of their role in nutrition and cell biology.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
