Food Research Engineer Overview

Food Research Engineers, Scientists and Technologists study the underlying principles of the processing and deterioration of foods using chemistry, engineering and microbiology. They analyze levels of vitamins, sugar, fat and protein in food and research ways to make processed food safe and healthful. They apply food science to determine the best ways to package, preserve, store and distribute food. Food Research Engineers play an important role in the nation's food supply. They work with little supervision and they form their own hypotheses. They often lead research teams, and in private industry may need to travel between different sites.

Researchers are generally split into two groups. Basic researchers are interested in understanding the chemical processes that cause livestock and crops to grow. Their research usually relies on financial grants and support from universities, the government and private firms. Applied research is usually aimed at solving a particular problem. Food scientists that conduct applied research apply the studies conducted by basic researchers to real products.
