FEATURED ONLINE SUMMER SESSION II COURSE

NSC 376- BIOACTIVE FOOD COMPOUNDS

This summer you have the opportunity to take NSC 376- Bioactive Food Compounds!

Summer Session II dates: July 13th- August 12th

DESIRING TO TAKE A NUTRITIONAL SCIENCES COURSE? CAN'T GET INTO NSC 170C1?

NSC 376 Course Description:
Does cinnamon influence blood sugar? Does black pepper affect fat cell production? Do artificial food dyes cause hyperactive behavior? Can broccoli help prevent cancer? These examples represent compounds that are frequently consumed, yet rarely discussed. Bioactive food compounds (BAFC) are components in food that have biological activity in the body, yet have no disease associated with their absence.

Food additives are usually meant to affect a food quality, but by proxy can also have biological effects on the body. These topics are covered in detail so that students are not limited to the basic 6 nutrients.
