NAME OF COURSE/MODULE: BAKERY TECHNOLOGY
COURSE CODE: SBT4043
NAME(S) OF ACADEMIC STAFF: ASSOC PROF CHEK ZAINI HASAN
RATIONALE FOR THE INCLUSION OF THE COURSE/MODULE IN THE PROGRAMME: Baking technology typically involves understanding how the application of heat can make changes to a dish, as well as understanding the chemical components involved with baking a number of different foods. In many ways, baking is simply a form of chemistry that results in edible results rather than other chemical solutions or creations. This course will allow student to get better understanding on how the process of baking turns base ingredients into a product far greater than the sum of its parts.
