Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim is to develop a spectrum of methods for the analysis of food ingredients (main and secondary components). The methods learned serve the students as a basis for the planning and implementation of a more complex food chemical analysis.

In this course different food analytical methods are presented and applied independently. Within the scope of this practical course, e.g. the nitrogen content according to Kjeldahl, as well as phosphate, chloride and nitrite are determined.

The contents of the courses are developed by independent practical exercises under guidance.

Assessment and permitted materials

- Antestat
- Laboratory journal
- Laboratory work
- Electronic protocol (submitted no later than one week after each test)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Obligatory preliminary meeting including safety training (exact date to be determined) and compulsory attendance during the whole practical course.

The final assessment will include the result of the application, the results of the analysis, the quality of the implementation and the final report.
For a positive conclusion of the internship, a maximum of two examples/preliminary discussions may be assessed as "not sufficient".
In addition, "not sufficient" assessed performances lead to a reduction of the grade by one degree.
