Brief presentation of the institution

Today's advanced production of food requires considerable knowledge
about the chemical and physical processes that interact when producing
and storing foods, as well as knowledge about how different component
influence the human organism. The Division carries out research and
provides education within most areas from raw material to the effects on
the health of the consumers. Our research is characterized by an
interdisciplinary focus on processing with broad aim of optimizing food
products regarding both convenience and quality as perceived by the
consumer. We strive to minimize the gap between basic research and
applied research. Long-standing collaboration with the food industry
ensures that new research findings can rapidly be implemented in new
processes, techniques or products. This collaboration is also of great
importance for the specialized food courses given by the division.
Research is also being carried out in pharmaceutical technology, which utilizes many of the scientific principles for drugs and foods
