If you would like to take this class further into your homeschooling these are some things you could consider or even if your student would like to go on to study food science even further:
- Food safety – the causes, prevention and communication dealing with foodborne illness
- Food microbiology – the positive and negative interactions between micro-organisms and foods
- Food preservation – the causes and prevention of quality degradation
- Food engineering – the industrial processes used to manufacture food
- Product development – the invention of new food products
- Sensory analysis – the study of how food is perceived by the consumer’s senses
- Food chemistry – the molecular composition of food and the involvement of these molecules in chemical reactions
- Food physical chemistry– the study of both physical and chemical interactions in foods in terms of physical and chemical principles applied to food systems, as well as the application of physicochemical techniques and instrumentation for the study and analysis of foods
- Food packaging – the study of how packaging is used to preserve food after it has been processed and contain it through distribution
- Molecular gastronomy – the scientific investigation of processes in cooking, social & artistic gastronomical phenomena
- Food technology – the technological aspects
- Food physics – the physical aspects of foods (such as viscosity, creaminess, and texture)
- Food physical chemistry– physical and chemical aspects of foods, structure-functionality relationships in foods.

If you are like me I often get into a rut when it comes to delicious, creative meals.
First, I must find the ‘want-to’ to cook up such master pieces. Cooking, I admit, isn’t one of my favorite things to do. I do it because I have 10-people that must eat at least four times a day (snack is in that count.)
Second, since we are an organic eating focused family I have to work hard to develop meals that didn’t come out of a box or a package.
Thirdly, I don’t normally sit down to research and find the meals that I know my family would find delicious and enjoy.
BUT….. Because I have thought of YOU my homeschool readers I have begun the journey of recipe finding.

Please share any of your family favorite, quick and easy meals to share and post them in the comment section.
