Master of Science in Food Innovation and Health

At the MSc programme in Food Innovation and Health you will be working with the development of healthy, sustainable, and tasty products. 

Challenges such as a high carbon footprint, obesity and bad nutrition are priorities high on the international agenda. At the same time, our consummation of food has changed. Even before we enter the kitchen, an increasing number of our food has been prepared or partly prepared. Convenience products are often not a healthy and sustainable choice, and we should demand the development of healthier and more sustainable products.

You will be taught how to combine knowledge about nutrition, sensory quality, innovation and entrepreneurship with food chemistry, culinary techniques, product development, sociology, and consumer experience.

You will be able to advise and collaborate with companies and health authorities in the food area. Your expertise will also give you a unique opportunity to shape the food culture of tomorrow.

The programme is in English.
