Video: Machining cupcakes and the materials science of food

By Eileen De Guire / October 11, 2013

Pop quiz! Can you think of a materials science application for these terms: thermal processing, dielectric properties, electrostatic and nonelectrostatic coating, nanotechnology, nondestructive testing, minerals, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and corrosion? It turns out food scientists use these terms, too. In fact, our world and the food science world overlap significantly. At Ohio State University,…
