12.- FOOD & WATER TECHNOLOGIES

Food Technology is a branch of Food Science based on multidisciplinary knowledge of nutrition, chemical analysis, physics, biochemistry and engineering. In addition, Food Technology aims to understand the nature of food and the phenomena associated with its spoilage, to develop processes for food production and improve the attributes of food to satisfy consumers. The food industry includes the following sectors: transformation or processing, preservation and manufacturing.

The food sector is so broad that it affects other sectors, such as the packaging manufacture and transport, and it uses treatments for water purification.

Water treatment technologies obtain drinking water, so necessary for our life. Water from different sources (wells, rivers, seas, industrial waste water) is subjected to a many stages, although all treatments usually coincide in three basic stages: water reception, reaction processes and conditioning and supply.
