Nutrition & Food Science
The Nutrition and Food Science (NFS) unit aims to educate students with knowledge in nutrition, food sciences, culinary skills and food science investigation experiment skills. We aim to provide our graduating students with a foundation that can be useful if they would like to pursue food sciences or other food related courses during their tertiary education.
Food Science Investigation:
Investigation is conducted on the effects of different types of flour (Plain flour, whole meal flour, bread flour) on the sensory properties (appearance, texture and taste) of cupcakes.

NFS baking and culinary competition
Every year, students are given the opportunity to participate in various cooking and baking competitions. The competition provides a platform for students to apply their nutritional knowledge through developing suitable recipes to meet the nutritional needs of the different age groups. Students will then have the opportunity to demonstrate their culinary skills and oral presentation when displaying the final products before a judging panel.
These enriching experiences enable students to apply what they have learnt in FCE/ F&N lessons and encourage them to see the relevance of the subject in their daily lives.
