4. Improvement of Digestibility:
Process such as milling, cooking, fermentation etc.
An introduction to the processes and their purpose
i. e. removal of un-digestible material, softening,
gelatinization, denaturation, inactivation of
enzyme inhibitors.
5. Improvement of acceptability -

e) Fabrication - shaping and improvement in texture, taste
use of comminuted materials to build up
fabricated articles - traditional types,
modern extruded and other fabricated types
f) Gelling
g) Texturisation

6. Improvement of nutritive quality
Process such as fortification, enrichment, germination
fermentation, inactivation of a nutritional factors,
stabilization of nutrients and increasing the availability
of nutrients

7. Improvement in Texture
Use of methods to prevent loss/absorption of moisture.
a brief idea about rheology and viscosity, aeration,
colloids and emulsions.
8. Prolongation of shelf-life:
An introduction of spoilage of food and principles behind
dehydration, freezing, low temperature storage, heat
treatment, use of chemicals in the preservation of food
and packaging
9. Simulation:
