1. Describe the manufacturing processes used that transform the raw materials into the manufactured food product:

The process of mixing is used to evenly distribute ingredients and transforms the ingredients into dough. Within a factory setting that is creating Chocolate Chip Cookies, all the ingredients are poured into an industrial sized mixing machine that is set to mix all the ingredients together until the dough is complete.

When freezing a product, the slower the rate of freezing, the larger the ice crystals form. This is why it is desirable to have the most rapid rate of freezing. Chocolate chip cookies that are being distributed to food service customers (e.g. restaurants and hotels) are frozen. They are put into a freeze tunnel and then flash frozen to prevent the formation of ice crystals. Freezing also stops enzymes growing and reproducing, making them retarded. While they are stoped, they are not destroyed.

The type of equipment used to heat the raw material depends on the nature of the raw materials and the intensity of the heat treatment. The chocolate chip cookies that are being distributed to supermarkets and large scale shops as a finished product need to be cooked inside the factory. The factory uses radiant heat in an oven, in particular, the tunnel oven. The tunnel oven is the most commonly used type of oven within the factory setting. The baking chamber is over 100 meters long and is narrow and shallow. Heat is also used to destroy the enzymes in the food product.

Evaluation - Food Technology Gcse

...Evaluation: I chose to make a meal that contained Calcium and Vitamin D. In order to accomplish this, I made two dishes. The first, Fish in Cheese Sauce, and the second, Pistachio and Chocolate Mousse with fruit salad in Tuile Baskets. Before I made these two dishes, I researched about Calcium and Vitamin D and found out why these were important in the body and what they helped prevent. This helped me gain more insight and helped me know how important they were. Then, I found out a list of foods that contained these nutrient sin high quantities. With this, I was able to choose what dishes I was going to make. Before I chose these dishes however, using Food for a PC, I was able to know how much Calcium and Vitamin D these dishes contained. Comparing the figures to the DRVs, I was able to know what needed to be adjusted. This meant that I changed the fish (originally Cod) to Herring which had more Calcium in it. Even with this, I had not provided the entire amount of calcium needed. Also, I researched a couple of recipes that I could do. Another part of my planning was that I created a sample sensory analysis sheet that I could use for my sensory testing. This helped because with the six words I had chosen, I knew what I needed to focus on more (making it soft, savoury, etc). After all of this, using the recipe I had chosen from the internet, I made a time plan that showed how long I should take to do things. This helped me because it told me what I needed to do and how long......

Gcse Food Technology- Quick Revision- Topic: Manufactures and New Products

...Food Technology Revising Why manufactures may use the internet for a new product 1) They could use the internet to research peoples favourite type of hot drinks weather they’re tea, coffe or hot chocolate. The internet could be used to also create a questionnaire for the public to vote on their favourite hot drinks and to give direct feed back if they like their drinks creamy/milky/thin and runny. The internet could also be used to locate any new types of recipes and what other types of ingredients to use. Why use the internet? 2) Today’s technology is rather advanced and offers people around the world more choices every day. As well computers, iPods, Phones, iPads can be another electronic device that can be used when researching existing products. Why do manufacturers package food? 3) A reason why manufacturers package food and drink products is to give the products their own identity, mostly to represent the brand. To also keep the products fresh and prevent cross contamination when contact with other food products. It also extends shelf life. Another reason would be that it protects the food products from getting damaged and that it also appeals to the public. Name 2 types of packaging and why its useful… 4) Waxed paperboard for milk and a plastic bottle for water is a good source of packaging because both materials are cheap to produce, easy to recycle, easy to print on, they’re lightweight and can be produced in different thicknesses. They’re both liquid......

...enough scientific evidences that the ozone is indeed diminishing. They claim that the scientific results generated are mere exaggerations. In the year 1978, certain government agencies in the US placed a federal ban on all “nonessential” use of CFC’s. By 1979, some countries passed similar bans. Also in the same year, the National Academy of Sciences found out that the ozone layer was actually depleting at twice the rate and it was finally accepted as probable. Due to better technology and techniques it was estimated that the ozone will deplete to 16.5% over the next 30 years. The research also warned about increases of skin cancer, widespread destruction to food crops, ocean phytoplankton and other sea organisms. Despite the studies conducted, DuPont argued that no ozone depletion has been detected. They stated that CFCs were responsible for keeping food from rotting in 100 million American homes, transporting food unspoiled on refrigerated trucks and cars and selling fresh food in supermarkets, food stores and restaurants. The American society will not be able to feed itself if CFCs were to vanish or cease to be produced. Billions worth of equipment will be rendered useless and CFC dependent economies will be destroyed. In 1980, several European nations together with Japan agreed to decrease CFC production. During Ronald Reagan’s presidency, US government efforts to control CFCs slowed to a halt, DuPont decided to suspend its research to find alternatives to CFCs. In......

...Change December 15. 2013 Change Food Politics: the political aspects of production, control, regulation, inspection and distribution of food. The politics can be affected by the ethical, cultural, medical and environmental disputes concerning proper farming, agriculture and retailing methods and regulations. Food politics is something most college students know nothing about. But without it, one bite from that burger you love from McDonalds could kill you. Do you ever stop and think about who controls what we eat, what can and cannot go into our food, or who even produces our food? Probably not. All college kids want to know is how well it tastes, the cost of it, and how much they can get in one sitting. Our food system is in place to make sure production, control, regulation, inspection, and distribution of food is met to the highest of standards. But as our world changes, so does our need for a changing food system. The American food system needs to change because it’s causing world hunger in other nations, there is a blurred line in the quality of organic food, and lastly Americans don’t even know where their food has come from. We’ve all seen those informational commercials where they ask us to donate around 20 cents a week to help the hungry in a third world country. Have you ever thought about how that country got to the state it’s in or why they can’t get out of that state? Believe it or not, the “Green Revolution” isn’t as great as most think. The revolution......

...In my english class we have been learning about food. Where our food comes from, advertising about food, how people need to buy local instead of fast food, and how we need to focus on producing more food rather than importing perfect types of food. In the next few paragraphs I will talk about all these subjects and what we can do to fix them. One thing i think we should do is make people aware about what is in our food and make people aware at a younger age. If people are exposed to the products people put into food when we are younger we have much more time to change our eating habits and make the younger generation much healthier. Foods such as fast food, almost anything in a box (chips, cookies, etc.), carbs, and much more. We need to let people know how bad these foods are for you, and things to eat in place of these foods. Foods such as Vegetables, fruits, meats, etc. Another thing we need to establish is the fast food restaurants. Fast food is terrible for you, and there need to be more regulations on this. Maybe if they put the ammount of calories you consume with your order on the receipt it will scare the people eating their food into either not eating as much of it or not eating at all. With the technology we have today I am sure that will not be impossible. Anything that makes people more aware of the affects todays food has on our bodies is a good thing. I also think that foods they sell at schools are horrible for you. They offer healthy items but......

The researchers first think of the topic that is inclined to their line of specialty then the researchers’ created an outline that will guide the research along the right path and to search for books, journals, & websites that would help them produce this research paper. Effect of Haram food to the health of Muslims There are many types of food but to the Muslims, there are 2 more kinds that depict whether the food is permitted to be eaten or not. These categories are called Halal and Haram. They have no certain advantages and disadvantages but the question is, does Haram food limit or affect the actual health of the Muslims? An important issue that has been with humanity even after generations have passed is the issue of what is right and what is wrong. It is part of our nature to be selfish sometimes if not, most of the time. Laws and some certain......

...Composition 10/06/2015 Dr. Jessica Martell Food for everyone or quality food for almost all of them? Paarlberg and Salatin have very different stand of view about food production. Paarlberg defends that we should expand the production way to poor countries, in the other hand Salatin defend an organic production and that way bring a healthy life for people not just feed them. In my opinion a lot of people starve nowadays and die because they do not have what to eat it does not make sense anymore. In my opinion Paarlberg is right when he defends the industrial way to produce and would help a lot to fight against the world hunger if it gets expanded. In his text Paarlberg claims that nowadays a new trend related to food is make food ecological and healthier. In his opinion people should focus on combating world hunger. The technology that is used in the actual production (produce food with less space and resources) should be exported to poor countries where hunger is a problem like in Africa. He cited a study published by Journal of Clinical Nutrition published last year that shows that is no nutritional advantages between organic and industrial food and he cited a quote of Mayo Clinic “No conclusive evidence shows that organic food is more nutritious than is conventionally grown food.”(Parllberg 145). If it is not more nutritional, it is more expensive and hard to plant organic why we should focus in organic instead expand the technology and fight against the word......

Effects of Advanced Technology to Production of Food

... EFFECTS OF ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCTION OF FOOD A Review of Related Literature submitted to the Faculty of the Department of Economics Crystalgene D. Silorio August 10, 2015 INTRODUCTION The world has progressed through hunter–gatherer, agricultural, and industrial stages to provider of goods and services. This progression has been catalyzed by the cultural and social evolution of mankind and the need to solve specific societal issues, such as the need for preservation to free people from foraging for food, and the need for adequate nutrition via consistent food supply year round. These forces led to the development of the food industry, which has contributed immensely to the basis for a healthy human civilization and helped society prosper and flourish (Lund 1989). According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, our population is increasing, and we need a 70% increase in food production. We have to grow, harvest, distribute, and consume our food more efficiently to feed all those people. We are not gaining more farmers or any other resources, and the production of our food is not as fast as our growing population, so the use of technology for the innovation of food production is a great help in addressing the issue. EFFICIENCY OF TECHNOLOGY The production of food is not always the same, it also depends on our resources, area, and climate. The natural disasters we experienced also affects the production. Technology has a great......

...Jamestown, New York. Thanks to his special chili sauce and savvy business management, his restaurant, named Johnny’s Lunch, became a huge success and a local institution. Johnny’s Lunch offers good food, low prices, top-notch service, and a unique store atmosphere, featuring Johnny’s hot dogs, burgers, fries, onion rings, and shakes, as well as less common options like homemade rice pudding. The restaurant now wants to grow into a national QSR (quick-service restaurant, or fast food) leader similar to McDonald’s. The company is currently led by two of Colera’s grandchildren, Anthony and John Calamunci, and a newly assembled team of executives with experience in the QSR industry. Growing the company from its humble origins into a national presence faces significant challenges. One will be to retain the restaurant’s small-town, local flavour as franchises proliferate across the country. Accomplishing this goal will require a coordinated effort. Another challenge for Johnny’s Lunch will be to sustain growth despite the impact of a weak economy. Analysts predict that the slow economy will threaten growth potential for QSRs; it’s estimated that the sector’s annual growth will slow to 2% or 3%, down from much higher rates during more promising times. The company hopes that familiar and cheap food will translate to success even in an economic down turn during 2009 and beyond. Management wanted to expand to 30-50 restaurants by the end of 2008, with a goal of as many as 3,000......
