Basic Food Processing Courses Workshop

Taipei, Taichung and Tainan, Taiwan

There are some nutrition professionals in Taiwan who have a general conception that processed foods are not healthy, or even unsafe, which has led to consumer misunderstandings about processed foods. To decrease these misunderstandings, ILSI Taiwan will hold 3 workshops in Taipei (northern Taiwan), Taichung (central Taiwan), and Tainan (southern Taiwan), providing basic courses on food processing and food additives.
