What is Food Engineering? Food engineering is a multidisciplinary field of applied physical sciences which combines science, microbiology, and engineering education for food and related industries.
History of food Engineering The history of food engineering can`t be pin pointed exactly in time because we have been doing this for hundreds of years and they cant find the exact date.
Areas of Food Engineering The three main areas of food engineering Agriculture Production Live stock
Food Engineering in Agriculture Genetically altering DNA Crops growing faster Crops growing bigger
Food Engineering in Production Enhancement on the assembly line Robots taking humans jobs
Food engineering in Live Stock Getting fatter Animals Speeding up the process of growth Producing more animals in less space With Vitamin D
Cons of food engineering Not tested properly Technology isn't precise enough Pesticides in the DNA of crops Animal Cruelty
Testing of Food Engineering All food engineering has been tested but it has mainly been tested on rats and small animals. All the research have been done by company scientist instead of independent scientist.
Technology isn't precise enough The gene is insert as precise as technology can allow it. It is also impossible to tell where the gene will go once it has been inserted. Scientist can only guess but not precise as it should be.
Pesticides in the DNA of crops These foods are regulated as pesticides by the EPA. When Bt is sold as a pesticide, people are warned not to swallow it, breathe it, or get it in cuts. Yet potatoes and corn that produce their own Bt are sold with no human testing.
Animal Cruelty Factory farming is a mass production where animals are: Given Steroids increase muscle Given Fatty food in increase fat size They are also given vitamin D so the animals never have to go outside and see sunlight they can grow up in a factory.
Pros of Food Engineering Adding more Vitamins into crops and animals Stop World hunger Cutting Cost
Adding more Vitamins into crops and animals False Companies have been taking out Vitamins making it cheaper and faster to grow.
Stopping World Hunger False It could possible make it cheaper for countries to grow and make crops but would not stop world hunger since many of the poor countries leaders controller the money.
Cutting Cost False Food Engineering would not cut any cost for the consumer. It can cut cost for the companies but the price of food has never went down since they started food engineering they just make a bigger profit.
Companies and ethical behavior Define: Ethical Behavior Ability and willingness to distinguish right from wrong and when you`re practicing one or the other.
Is Food Engineering Ethical? No it is not ethical for a company to know that a product is bad but still sells it.
