Science shows a strong correlation between our health and the composition and quality of the food we eat.

The MSc programme in Molecular Nutrition and Food Technology provides you with the tools and knowledge you will require to develop nutritious foods designed to reduce the risks of developing health issues such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, allergy, and cancer. In addition you will acquire knowledge of food technology and of processes that affect food quality and functionality, as well as consumers’ choice of foods.
