FST110L: Food Processing Laboratory

In this food science course, students get hand on experiences in food processing, at the bench and pilot scale.

Professor Gail Bornhorst talks with students about what the tempurature measurements mean from the jars during the Food Science and Technology class in the Foot Processing Pilot Plant Class on November 2, 2016. The students checked tempurature of canned tomatoes, the proper metal can measurements for safety, and learn how retorts sterilize food after it is canned.
