Event details

Are we really what we eat? And how do we know what is in our food? This free online course will look to answer some of these questions, by looking at the science behind nutrition, covering aspects of biology, chemistry and physics. You’ll look at the components of food that are given on food labels and consider how these are processed by the body and impact your overall wellbeing.
