    • Food Engineering
      BY: Michael Ganues
    • 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
      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
      Companies have been taking out Vitamins making it cheaper and faster to grow.
    • Stopping World Hunger
      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
      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.
