COURSE GOALS: Food toxicology is concerned with assessing the injurious effects on living systems of chemicals present in foods. The chemical agents can be man-made (e.g., pesticide residues, food additives, contaminants originating with processing machinery, or packaging materials) or of natural origin (e.g., microbial, animal or plant toxins). They can, also be generated in the course of preparing, processing, and preserving foods (e.g., mutagens and carcinogens). It is important that students of food science as well as environmental toxicology are familiar with the basic chemical and biological aspects of the injurious substances present in foods. This course wishes to develop an understanding of the chemical and biological principles that determine toxicity and, by presenting typical examples of the toxic substances found in foods, it hopes to let students become familiar with their properties, modes of action, and methods of analysis.
Course Format:

Food Toxicology is involved in delivering a safe and edible supply of food. To the consumer. During processing, a number of substances may be added. To food to make it look, taste, or smell better. Fats, oils, sugars, starches.

Food Safety and Toxicology

This is one of the major focus areas in the department with education, research and outreach activities conducted by a large number of our faculty. In addition, there is an opportunity to obtain dual degrees in Food Science and Integrative Toxicology through MSU's Program in Enviromental and Integrative Toxicology Sciences. Also offered are master's programs in food safety.

Current faculty research emphases focus on agents that affect human and animal health including mycotoxins and other natural products, foodborne disease agents and their toxins, and a variety of nutritional factors. This is an active area of research and education with a significant capacity for career growth.
