About us

The Division of Food Science and Biotechnology comprises three basic chairs; Food Life Sciences, Food and Health Science, and Food Production Technology.

Food is the vital alimentary material for humans to sustain life and to promote wellness; food must be highly acceptable for human consumption.

The challenges of this century are to overcome worldwide problems of food production and to prevail over life style-related diseases. To establish a fundamental concept of foods for improving the quality of life from various points of view, we take a multidisciplinary approach. We have the education and research programs of studying food materials at a chemical, biological and physiological level using the updated information and technology about rapidly advancing bioscience.
