Shraddha’s Answer

A food scientist studies the deterioration and processing of foods by using microbiology, engineering, and chemistry. They determine nutrient levels of food by analyzing its content. They look for new nutritional food sources and investigate avenues for making processed foods taste good, safe and healthy. They also find the best way to distribute, process, preserve and package the food.

A food scientist usually requires a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university because they use chemistry, microbiology, and engineering to analyze the principles of food deterioration and processing and the food’s vitamin, protein, sugar, and fat content. Often, a student continues on to get a doctoral degree. A lot of experience and knowledge in a work-related field is normally expected. Some on-the-job training may be given.

Estelle’s Answer

To get an entry-level job in food science, you need a bachelor's degree in agricultural science with a concentration in food science. Earning your degree typically takes about four years. Basic courses include biology, botany, chemistry and principles of statistical analysis. Basically you need a passion for science and heavy chemistry background.
