“The industry is mass-producing food and especially ready-to-eat foodstuffs, so it is important to develop alternative and less harmful ways for preservation. My dream is to see self-preservative foods, where no chemicals are added.” Mohammad Azizkhani is a student in the International Master’s Programme in Food Sciences at the University of Helsinki. In this programme, you gain the knowledge and skills to have an impact on what people will eat in the future. You explore innovations in food and learn to improve the healthiness, safety, ecology and ethics of food and food processing. You also get to know how raw materials and processing technologies are utilised to make food taste good. You can apply to our International Master’s Programmes as of 3 December 2018 until 11 January 2019.
