Food Biochemistry and Food Bioprocessing

Food biochemistry is concerned with the breakdown of food in the cell as a source of energy. Each cell is a factory that converts the nutrients of the food one eats to energy and other structural components of the body. The amount of energy that these nutrients supply is expressed in Calories (kilocalories). Food Bioprocessing have become widely used in several fields of commercial biotechnology, such as production of enzymes (used, for example, in food processing and waste management) and antibiotics
