Food technology deals with the production of foodstuffs and their preservation. It is an interdisciplinary science combining aspects of physics, chemistry, and biotechnology. Food technology is becoming increasingly important for reducing food waste and making food “healthier”. A currently very topical field is functional food. Functional food is enriched or supplemented with substances that promote health or well-being, such as vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, probiotics, omega-3 fatty etc.
Artificial intelligence is gaining importance in this field, too. For example, it is used for making food production more efficient or for adapting food to an individual’s needs. Specific compositions of food, methods for its production, new ingredients, and methods for its preservation can be the subject of a patent.
