Analysing menus in a care home.Understanding the link between foods, diets, dietary patterns, nutrients, and physical health is paramount in the current environment.And that’s where nutritionists can help.Over the four year course you’ll look at the issues that make the headlines and the topics that touch our everyday lives. Whilst our relationship with food has never had a higher profile in the public sphere, the food industry is constantly adapting to new consumer trends and developments. Many dietary factors can influence a person’s health, and throughout our course, you’ll gain a working knowledge of a range of contemporary nutrition issues such as the origins of nutrition-related illnesses, the chemistry of food and dietary assessment.You won’t simply learn the theory behind nutrition, you’ll explore how it works through practical sessions.We have chemistry and microbiology laboratories, a taste panel suite, a product development kitchen, a bakery and food quality testing equipment.
