The UW-Stout Food Science Club is a group of food enthusiasts that are curious about the science behind our food, the group is NOT limited to food science majors and welcomes anyone who is interested. They stay involved in the local community through volunteer events and food industry tours. During past events, they’ve toured a maple syrup farm, different breweries and creamery tours. They also attend social networking events and presentations hosted by IFT- Minnesota. Meetings are held every three weeks, on Wednesdays. Meeting times may change due to COVID-19. The meetings involve out of classroom experiments and learning, subjects include: sensory testing, fermentation, pickling, candy, cheese making, baking and experimenting with wild yeast. One goal of the group is to expand their knowledge and involvement while networking within the food science field.
