Nutrition is a branch of science that interprets and analyzes the interaction between nutrients and other matter in food, with respect to growth, maintenance, reproduction, and health and disease of a living organism. This topic encompasses intake, assimilation, absorption, catabolism, biosynthesis, and excretion of food. Food science deals with the study of the physical, chemical, and biological makeup of food; and the underlying concepts of food processing. This discipline combines engineering, physical, and biological sciences to investigate the nature of the foods, the causes of food deterioration, the fundamental principles underlying food processing, and improvement of foods for public consumption.
