3 Revision Session What is going to be covered today: Recap on research, designing, development and specifications.Fish and nutritionStandard componentsSustainabilityPackaging and labellingPreservation, chilling and freezingCAD/CAM/HACCP
4 Research A research based question will be on the exam. What types of research have you done for your coursework?
5 Research There are two types of research; primary can be carrying out questionnaires, Shop Surveys and letters/ s.Secondary research can be internet, interview, books and packaging.
6 Recipes – exam tipYou must learn 2 recipes and know how to make them. Annotate (label and make notes) all designs and make sure you read the specification given. Flow charts must be in the correct order, must have safety points including HACCP and timings. For each recipe you must know how to develop it in several ways and be able to justify your reasons.
7 Sketching in your exam – examples of good practice: Draw in pencilColour in if possibleLabel all parts of your design
8 Choosing your final design: You will have to give detailed reasons foryour choice of final design. Remember lookat the specification they gave you and relateback to that e.g. if the specification asks forthe product to be colourful and you have puta range of different coloured vegetables inthen use that as a reason for choice
9 TaskComplete the development and specification exam revision questions in your pack.
10 Nutrients in fishDraw a fish and identify all the nutrients that are in fish.What types of fish do you eat or can you think of?
11 NutrientsFish is a good source of Protein, Fat (oily fish), Calcium, Vit A, D &B and Omega 3.What are the functions of these nutrients (why do we need them?)
12 Function of nutrients Protein is needed for growth and repair Fat is needed for energy and warmthCalcium is needed for strong bonesVit A is needed for night vision and forms cells in skinVit D is needed for strong bones and teethVit B (thiamine, riboflavin and niacin) is needed for releasing energyOmega 3 helps brain function and prevents heart disease
13 TaskComplete the exam questions on protein, meat, poultry and fish in your pack.
14 Types of fishThere are three types of fish, white fish, oily fish and shellfish. Many products can be made with fish, some are:fish cakes, fish fingers, fish pie, paella, kedgeree, goujons, salad nicoise and chowder.How can fish be cooked?
15 Research – functions of fish in recipes FlavourNutritionTexture
16 Standard ComponentsStandard components are pre-prepared items used in food production. They are made at a different time, and often at a different place by another company. Common examples are:Pre-prepared sandwichesPastry casesFlan casesGrated cheeseAdvantages DisadvantagesSaves timeTime must be allowed for ordering and supplyQuality is guaranteedCan be more expensiveA wider range of products can be produced e.g. tortilla wraps could be used for a variety of savoury fillings.The manufacturer is relying on another company that could let them down
17 Preservation Fish coagulates (sets) at 60˚c. Preservation means extending shelf life of products.Fish can be preserved by smoking and canning.Smoked fish does not need further cooking.Canned fish is already cooked and stored in brine.What other sorts of preservation can you think of?
18 TaskComplete the preservation exam questions in your booklet.
19 SustainabilitySustainable fishing is a activity that uses up resources or damages the environment so that it cannot be used in the future. You should avoid eating Cod and Salmon and eat Pollock and Trout instead.Complete the environmental issues questions in your book
20 Safe Storage of FoodLow risk foods: this means foods with high acid or sugar content, raw vegetables, edible oils and fatsMedium risk foods: this means dried or frozen products, freshly processed products and those with a high fat contentHigh risk foods: this means unprocessed meat, fish, eggs and dairy products
21 Chilling and FreezingFoods have to be chilled at 1-8˚c to slow the rate of bacterial reproduction.Foods have to be frozen at 0˚c to -18˚c to slow down the rate of bacterial production so the bacteria is dormant or inactive.
22 TaskComplete the preservation exam revision questions that are in your booklet.
23 Sensory Testing of Food Products Sensory testing involves the scientificmeasurement of the qualities of a foodproduct. There are a variety of tests whichcan be done depending on what youwant to find out. It is important to select thecorrect one for the purpose:Difference tests – these are used to find out if there are any noticeable differences between 2 or more products. E.g. coca cola and diet coca colaRanking tests – a set of coded samples are given to the tester in a random order. The tester ranks the samples in order of a specific quality e.g. sweetness. This test is often used to screen one or two of the best samples in a group.Descriptive tests or profiling – a set of sensory descriptors is given for the testers to use e.g. colourful, glossy, dry etc. and the tester gives a score for each descriptor
24 Packaging Why are foods packaged? To protect the product – against physical damage, chemical contamination or micro-organisms, insects or rodentsTo contain the product e.g. eggs, fruit and vegetablesTo preserve the product e.g. tin cans and modified atmosphere packaging (where foods in a package are flushed with a mixture of gases to prolong their shelf life)To identify and provide information on the productTo prevent tampering – tamperproof packaging techniques now make it easy to detect if a package has been opened, examples include plastic collars on bottle tops, paper strips across jar lids and aluminium foil seals on fruit juice cartons
25 LabellingThe 1996 Food Labelling regulations state that a food label must include the following information:Name of the product clearly displayedThe name and address of the manufacturerA list of all ingredients in descending order of weight (largest to smallest)Storage instructions, giving specific details of the best conditions and temperatures for safe storageShelf-life of the product must be shownCooking instructions (if appropriate)The country for where the product originatedThe net weight of the product
26 A mass production line in a milk-bottling plant Manufacturing methods and equipmentThere are different types of manufacturing system, each one suitable for different scales of production:One-off production is when a single product is made to the individual needs of a customer, for example a designer wedding cake. This is classed as a luxury food item.Batch production involves the making of a set number of identical products (large or small). Typically batch production is used in a bakery, where a certain number of several different types of bun, loaf, cake etc, will be made every morning.Mass production is used to make foods on a large scale, either wholly or partially using machines. The production line involves individual tasks that will be carried out repetitively. This is time-efficient and helps to keep the costing of the product low.Continuous-flow production is a method of high-volume production, used in foods such as milk and packet pizzas. Production lines run 24 hours a day. Where production line machines are controlled by computers this is called Computer-Aided Manufacture (CAM).A mass production line in a milk-bottling plant
27 Quality Assurance of Food Products .Factory equipmentThere are different types of specialised machinery used in food manufacture.Computerised scales weigh food more accurately.Centrifuge machines separate liquids from solids.Date-stamping machines will label many packaged foods with a date stamp on the production line.Depositors add an exact amount of food into a number of containers at the same time.Mandolins slice or cut food products so portions are consistently the same size.Bench or floor-standing mixers are used in bakeries to add and mix exact quantities of ingredients to the food, maintaining consistency.Boiling vats are huge drums used for cooking foods, such as soups.Deck ovens are computer-controlled ovens that cook a batch of several products at the same time.
28 Special Dietary needs of Consumers Coeliacs Disease – allergic to gluten therefore cannot eat anything made from wheat e.g. flourLactose intolerant – allergic to lactose (found in milk) therefore cannot eat any dairy produceVegans – vegetarians who do not eat any foods associated with animalsOvo-lacto vegetarian – vegetarians who do not eat meat but will eat eggs and milkAllergies – the most common food allergy is a nut allergyPregnant women – needs lots of protein rich foods, vitamins and minerals. She should avoid soft cheeses and pate due to bacteria that might be present.Children – needs plenty of protein and calcium. Reduce the amount of sugar and fat.
29 Control Checks During Food Manufacture Visual checks to cartons to see if they have been tampered with/damaged. Ones damaged should be removed.Visual check date rotation first in first used.Weighing and measuring use digital scales for accuracy.Automatic mixing for computer controlled amount of time.Fixed cooking period using timerVisual check – are they the correct colour?Correct amount in each packetDetector for foreign objects e.g. metal, jewelleryWeight checkTemperature of sealingTemperature of storage/distribution area
30 Decorations and Finishes A decoration is something you apply to a product AFTER it has been made e.g. melted chocolate, icing, piped creamA finish is something that you do to the actual product to change its appearance during the making of the product e.g. glaze with egg, glaze with sugar and water, flute pastry edges, put nuts on top
31 How hazards are controlled during food production HACCP:HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis andCritical Control point. It involves:Identifying possible risks before, during and after production of a productThe risks are analysed in terms of how likely they are to happen and how serious they areFor each hazard preventative measures and testing/checking is planned in to ensure that the hazard (Critical control point) is reduced.
32 How do manufacturers obtain consistent products? Consistency means:Same quantities of ingredients usedSame amount of filling, coating, casingSame colourSame shapeSame textureSame strength of flavourSame sizeSame nutritional contentHuman error means that hand produced food products are not as accurate and consistent as those made by machinery. Automated equipment can repeat tasks many times without getting tired or risking workers’ health and safety
33 CAD (Computer Aided Design) Designing a new food product with the aid ofa computer is known as computer aidedDesign. CAD can be used to:Calculate the nutritional value of the food productWork out the sizes and costs of different batch production runsWork out the shelf life of a productPresent the product’s sensory profilePredict what will happen if ingredients or methods are changedPlan how a product will be manufacturedPresent ideas for the packaging
34 CAM (Computer Aided Manufacture) CAM is using computers to control pre-programmed equipment to make products.CAM has many uses in food productionincluding:Automated production processesData logging e.g. recording pH values, temperaturesResponding to monitoring feedback e.g. reducing or increasing temperature of environment as neededControl of designated tolerances e.g. weight, dimensions, moisture content, flavour colour, shape
