Food Science

The food science project, launched in July 2006, applies nuclear-based techniques to investigate fundamental and industrial problems of national significance in food science.

The current interests of the group relate to determining structure-function relationships in food-based systems, such as lipids, proteins and polysaccharides, with direct applications to food processing and human nutrition.

Neutron and X-ray scattering methods naturally feature extensively in our work with SANS being conducted primarily on our 40m instrument, Quokka. Articles providing a general introduction to the subject can be found in:
