    The purpose of the national health and nutrition policy is to educate Australians about wise food choices, in order to limit the incidence of diet-related diseases and ultimately reduce the cost of health care.

    Re: Food Technology Marathon (question and answer)

    i'm back sorry been distracted by other things lols

    Functional Foods are food products (raw or manufactured) that have been modified to meet consumer demands. There are 3 main types;
    -foods that have a medicinal value eg, peppermint tea for gastric promblems
    -modified foods, such as those that are low in fat
    -foods that have non-nutrients such as probiotics

    this is in the nutrition unit isn't it?

    What is the macroenvironment?

    Re: Food Technology Marathon (question and answer)

    just in a random section of one of the first two topics of the textbook, not a syllabus dot point though.
    Macro enviro is the broad external enviro that influences a company and is largely out of the company's control, such as the level of interest rates.

    Ask me questions from topics one and two until after my half yearly i hope i didnt just look stupid there, saying that when your question was from it

    Re: Food Technology Marathon (question and answer)

    Yeah that is fine, i understand. How are you finding my half-yearly paper.

    Slow freezing causes the formation of large ice crystals in the vacuole of the cell which then penetrates the cell wall and causes loss of water. Example frozen apples become wrinkled from a loss of water from leaking cells.

    Sorry can't think of a question so here is a dot point (sorry if its a bit big)


    • compare the processing techniques, equipment, storage and distribution systems used in industry with those used domestically

    Re: Food Technology Marathon (question and answer)

    didnt like question number three. loved the m/c and long responses were easy, but not very long?

    Food manufacturing equipment varies in size and shape depending on the amount of food to be produced. The equip used in food manufacturing plants completes the same tasks as appliances and utensils in a domestic kitchen, just on a larger scale. Therefore, the design of the equipment needs to be:
    - stronger - to work continuously with large quantities
    - durable - reliability is very important so production is not held up by breakages
    -hygenic - easily cleaned, non-reactive, scratch resistant surfaces
    -efficient - many industrial machines are automated with conveyors transporting the product from one set of processing equipment to the next. As industrial equip may operate 24 hrs a day, it also needs to be energy efficient. Gas is primarily used as a heating source as it is both efficient and cost effective

    2 Which feature of a food product is monitored by critical control points in a HACCP
    system?
    (A) Size
    (B) Safety
    (C) Nutrition
    (D) Consistency

    3 How does protection of the ecological environment impact on food product
    development?
    (A) Decrease in recycling
    (B) Increase in use of pesticides
    (C) Decrease in food production cost
    (D) Increase in use of biodegradable packaging

    4 Which product is preserved using modified atmosphere packaging?
    (A) Cornflakes
    (B) Canned tomatoes
    (C) Pre-packaged salads
    (D) Fresh flavoured milk


    (2006 paper) theres three because they are only m/c

    Active non nutritents are substances that are not essential for life but which can enhance the functioning of the body or contribute to the promotion of good health e.g. Fibre can help keep the gut healthy by providing fuel for beneficial bacteria and by stimulating peristalis that keep the gut contents moving effectively

    Setting up of a multinational in a small country town will effect the social life in ways such as:

    • Transport of goods will increase pollution being in a remote area
    • Pollution in the surrounding environment of the factory
