  Food Technology   is a science branch that deals with the techniques involved in the   production, processing, preservation, packaging, labeling, quality   management, and distribution of food products. The field also involves   techniques and processes that are used to transform raw materials into food.   Extensive research goes behind making food items edible as well as   nutritious.   Students can take up Food Technology Jobs at under   graduate and post graduate level.
