Bachelor of Science in Food Science and Nutrition

Program Overview

Food Science and Nutrition is a rapidly growing discipline, drawing knowledge from a range of disciplines including biology, chemistry, food engineering and even business.  Availability of food, especially nutritive food is a big problem for the developing countries. According to a report, 40% of the population in Pakistan is living below the poverty line and 44% of children under the age of 5 are stunted and unlikely to reach their full mental and physical potential in Pakistan. Consequently, food and its nutrition are essential for a healthy life and to get rid of some common foodborne diseases like hepatitis, typhoid, influenza and heart diseases. The combination of nutrition and food sciences provides a much better understanding of the processes behind food production and how this can be modified to produce healthier foods. In BS Food Science and Nutrition the students will learn about food chemistry and quality, food preservation methods, nutrients in food, nutritional values of fruits and vegetables, sources of proteins, food manufacturing business and many more related areas. This program aims to fulfil the idea of “Therapeutics through Nutritional Control”.
