Food science concerns everything having to do with the way humans provide, obtain, process, and prepare food. As such, it encompasses a wide range of disciplines, from the growing of agricultural products and the maintaining of domestic animals, to the packaging and formulation of food as products for sale, and even includes cooking. Many aspects are a subdivision of agricultural science, but naturally, as with many subjects of human study, some food science topics fall into other categories as well.
