Chair of Food Chemistry

Welcome to the Henriette Schmidt-Burkhardt Chair of Food Chemistry!

Food chemistry aims to uncover the molecular composition of food. The goal is to understand how defined molecular structures influence the quality, safety and health effects of our food.

The study programme “Lebensmittelchemie” offers an interdisciplinary course with a focus on food chemistry, state-of-the-art analytical methods, molecular nutrition, microbiology, food technology and food law.
