Product Development

This is a three hour lecture and lab course that deals with the basic stages of product development for food products. Over the course of the semester, the students will develop a "new" food product complete with packaging. They will become familiar with government regulations concerning the packaging, labelling and introduction of a new food product. They will also be introduced to MS Project as a planning tool and QualityMaster software program as a tool for product development and labelling. The product development of nutraceuticals, functional foods and novel foods, such as genetically modified foods will also be discussed.
