NAC Students will learn "The Science of Food" at the next Chapman Visiting Scholars Series
February 16, 2012
The Science of Food 2011
The next installment of Nicholas Academic Centers' and Chapman University's Visiting Scholars Series will be "The Science of Food" by Dr. Anuradha Prakash.
 
Prakash will  discuss the chemistry behind the food we eat,  how fat and protein molecules interact to turn milk into ice cream, how taste buds work, how taste and smell help us determine what to eat, and much more.
 
She presented on this topic in the 2010-2011 inaugral series, much to the enjoyment of those who attended. Through a live demonstration, Prakash used the elements of ice cream to illustrate how their chemical interactions create the sweet treat. 
 
This event will run from 10:30 AM until 1:30 PM on March 3, 2012 at the NAC 1 Annex located at 313 N. Birch St., Santa Ana, CA, 92701. This event is free and open to the public.
