Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Applying knowledge and understanding

Graduates will be able to recognize the most common alimentary plants and the related phytochemical compounds as well as the specifications of food additive.

Knowledge and understanding

This course gives a useful bit of botanical information on alimentary plants and is a preparatory course to other course concerning the nutrition.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it
