Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Students have knowledge from fundamentals of food chemistry. They are able to understand chemical composition of food matrix from point of micro and macro components. They know fundamental chemical reactions taking place in food matrix. They know factors affecting chemical changes in food matrix during production and storage.
