Moisture is an important factor in food quality, preservation and resistance to deterioration. Determination of moisture content also is necessary to calculate the content of other food constituents on a uniform basis (e.g: dry weight basis). The dry matter that remains after moisture analysis is commonly referred as total solids(Nielsen, 2010). Moisture content is also important to food scientist for a number of different reasons: o Legal and labelling requirements: There are legal limits to the maximum or minimum amount of water that must be present in certain types of food o Economic The cost of many foods depends on the amount of water they contain- water is an expensive ingredient and manufacturers often try to incorporate as much as possible in a food without exceeding some maximum legal requirement o Microbial stability The propensity of microorganisms to grow in foods depends on their water content. For this reason many foods are dried below some critical moisture content o Food
D2: Health, safety and hygiene regulations and their impact on food retailing. Health and safety laws An Act to make further provision for securing the health, safety and welfare of persons at work, for protecting others against risks to health or safety in connection with the activities of persons at work, for controlling the keeping and use and preventing the unlawful acquisition, possession and use of dangerous substances, and for controlling certain emissions into the atmosphere. This act is really important for food retailers to meet their health and safety because it will reduce the risks for their employees and customers. If food retailers don’t meet their health and safety, they will be prosecuted and fined thousands They will also lose their reputation and performance. Healthy and safe environments Healthy and safe
The authors concept was to set a futuristic setting, but not too futuristic. The limitations of space travel, including factors like weight and time, were very important to the story due to the whole book being about the difficulties of retrieving a stranded astronaut from Mars. The chapters are not very long, with the novel being made from twenty-six chapters. These short chapters reflect how the story is composed of many different small issues that are needed to be fixed by Mark and NASA, creating many sections of the book being about a variety of different problem solving
Izamar Rivas BIOL 1322-46401 July 23,2016 Food Label Assignment The key nutrients on the nutrition facts label is very important to know because it allows one to be informed of what kinds of foods they are putting in their bodies. Starting off with the serving size and servings per container, it allows you to know how much food the label is going off by. The amounts per serving lets you know just how much amount of each label the food item contains. The calories allows you to know how many calories there are and for example, if the label says “servings per container 2” and there are 120 calories listed, then you are really consuming double the amount of calories and would be a total of 240 calories. The unhealthy nutrients would be the trans
One of the greatest accomplishments of the Apollo missions was the integrated circuit, which led to the microchip used today. Created to minimize the amount of mass launched into space, integrated circuits are used in almost all technology today (Gaudin). While there are a few monuments to commemorate the Apollo 11 mission or Neil Armstrong, none of them incorporate all of the important effects mentioned above, as this monument would. Not only would this monument educate the public on what the Moon landing meant for the United States, it would allow them to realize how much of today’s technology they gained from the space program, a realization much needed today when the government wants to end NASA’s
After the Apollo missions and after the change in direction of NASA’s mission and goals, there was jobs left for military career opportunities.During Moonport there was a lot of missions during this time like the Apollo missions, Mercury Missions, Gemini Missions. The main goal for Moonport was to get someone into space it’s 1957 and the Russians had already got someone to the moon now that was a problem because people believed that the Russians were spying on America also Americans believed that they wouldn’t be able to develop new technology so their main goal was to get someone in space. There plan worked and on May 5th, 1961 they had the first man in space this was a huge deal at this time! Each of these missions had a goal and each of them had achievements with them. The mercury missions goal was to orbit a crewed spacecraft around earth and bring it back safely, their achievements was that there was 6 successful manned space flights.
For example, the plant that I work for within Hillshire brands is a sliced deli meats manufacturer and we needs to communicate certain dangers to the community when outbreaks of disease or other disasters occur. The companies must also take certain safety measures for protecting nearby residents from leaks like ammonia that may affect the water or air quality. We dispose of inedible meat on a daily basis so this is not regular garbage, these scraps are handled by a special waste company that has the correct licenses required to dispose of the product correctly. There are state and federal laws that protect people from unethical environmental practices. Companies that violate these laws may face stiff penalties.
P6 Explain safe working practises necessary in preparing, cooking and serving food in the health and social care environment To be able to work in any food environment in the Health & Social Care setting you must first do a food hygiene course and they all come in different levels and categories, these are basic food hygiene to level 1 Food Safety, preparing drinks and snacks, for example, cups of tea, hot chocolate, making a sandwich or serving a piece of cake or fruit, Level 2 Food Hygiene, preparing and serving meals with hygiene training for those preparing and serving meals. And Level 3 Food Hygiene Certificate for supervisors. Your kitchen sink can contain more germs than your bathroom sink, germs such as E. coli, campylobacter and salmonella
We chose the Space Race as our topic of research, because the events of the Space Race became very vital to the space exploration we all know, and are familiar with today. The Space Race is not examined closely enough today for students to get a good grasp of why the events are so important to us today. This is why we thought it would be both interesting and educational to our viewers to learn more about the events leading up to a man on the moon, and also what NASA has and is still accomplishing in more recent
They attained the majority of their data through NASA launched satellites and rockets. Which was another purpose of the Apollo missions, to collect data. Consequently, the Apollo Program provided the scientists with measurable attributes such as air temperature and cosmic ray impacts, that would’ve been hard or even impossible to find (NASA). If atmospheric scientists didn’t have access to such information then climate changes wouldn’t have been noticed, or fixed. The Apollo missions not influenced them with important discoveries like climate change, but with many more discoveries.
