Course Objectives: 1. To learn the basic principles of gravimetric, colorimetric, titrimetric,

chromatographic and spectrometric analyses as applied to foods

. To gain knowledge about food constituents and characteristics 2-

important in quality control and research laboratories

. To acquire laboratory skills required for performing a range of 3-

chemical analyses of food components

. To gain experience in searching the literature, evaluating data,4-

problem-solving and writing scientific reports as related to food

composition and analysis

Class Procedure: one 60-min lectures per week . One 4hour laboratory per week .

Assignments: Students will be assigned homework problems to reinforce discussions.

Students are encouraged to work by him self..

Evaluation Methods:All assignments, laboratory reports, and exams will be expected to be

professional quality. No late work will be accepted without prior approval

from the instructor. No make-up exams will be given unless if there is

advanced permission and justifiable reason for missing the exam. Make-up

exam will be comprehensive and taken during the final week. The grade
