Food Scientists work to give us all the delicious processed food we have today, from noodles to chips. They ensure that the processing centers meet health guidelines. Food scientists may also conduct experiments to improve food properties like taste and texture.
Associate Food Scientists assist in all these tasks and more. As an Associate Food Scientist, you may help determine the nutritional value of food or measure deterioration. You may work in a food production facility, laboratory, or factory.
A day in life may include researching different food storage techniques, developing new recipes, or exploring ways to improve current food products. You may also assist in management tasks like maintaining a schedule, creating reports, and taking phone calls.
You'll need a bachelor's degree in food science, agricultural science, or a similar field. It's also helpful to get internship experiences for more job opportunities.
