Course Description: A balance between human needs and the health of our environment is required, especially as the world's population grows and global climate patterns change. So how should we judge our food, nutritionally and environmentally? What do our foods contain? How much energy, water, and labor is used in their production, processing, and distribution? How does the food chain operate in developed and developing economies, and what does this mean for the future of food production locally and globally? This course covers issues including human dietary needs; energy, protein, and vitamins; food composition and trends; meeting dietary needs; Food consumption trends: relationships with demographic and lifestyle changes; food production, processing, and distribution; knowing where our food comes from; inputs to food production; levels of profit and sustainability; global population growth; and issues and challenges for sustainable and equitable food production and supply.
