The Role of Biotechnology in Food Production and Processing

  title={The Role of Biotechnology in Food Production and Processing},
  author={Balarabe Musa Maryam and Mohammed Sani Sambo Datsugwai and Idris Shehu},
Biotechnology is the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make useful products, or any technological applications that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use. Depending on the tools and applications, it often overlaps with the fields of bioengineering and biomedical engineering. Some of the applications were identified in this paper to include biotechnology in food fermentation to enhance properties… CONTINUE READING
