This course provides you an overview of flavor chemistry and technology, interaction of flavors with food ingredients, application of flavors in food products, and the assessment of flavor quality changes. This three-day virtual course covers in-depth training about the physical and chemical composition of flavors, sensory evaluation and descriptions of flavors, and the regulatory framework for use of flavor ingredients in the food and beverage industries. Interactive hands-on activities will ensure your understanding of key points in the lectures.
The structure of this short course is a series of three-day live sessions. Participants are required to complete homework assignments before the first session and throughout the duration of the course. Participants are encouraged to join an Attendee Kick-Off meeting held one week prior to the course in order to meet your instructors and network with fellow attendees. Course logistics and resources will be posted on IFTConnect, the official IFT online community. IFT will send detailed instructions and zoom information one week prior to the course.
