The subject is focused on knowledge acquisition of carbohydrates technologies, dairy technology, technology of oils and fat production, meat technology, technology of fruit and vegetables. Carbohydrate technologies include production of beet sugar, sugar as raw material for chemical and biochemical transformation, milling technology, baking technology, production of biscuits, snack products, pasta, production of chocolate and confectioneries, production of starch and modified starches. Dairy technology is focused on the dairy processing, production of milk products and products prepared by fermentation. Technology of fats and oils covers processes of the production of oils and fats from seeds, refining of raw oils, modification processes of triacylglycerols and fats as food and fats in food. Meat technology is focused on meat production, technology of meat products and technology of eggs. Technology of fruit and vegetables is focused on preservation processes and on the production of products on the base of fruit and vegetables.
