How Chemical Engineers Can Help to Discover Super Food for Survival

A few days ago, I have read a website and some articles about forgotten survival food. It kept me thinking if I am prepared or not if the day we live now become a chaotic scenario, havoc, crisis, emergency, or suddenly a war occurred. Are we ready? Do we have the stock food to keep on surviving?

I’m a Chemical Engineering educator and am constantly involved in research work. It made me think if I have sufficiently thought of improving the great list of survival food introduced by Art Rood. Personally, I think chemical engineers have an amazing role to play in this.

Here is what I think Chemical Engineers can do…

Chemical engineers can play a crucial role in the discovery of superfoods for survival by using their knowledge and skills to develop new methods for growing and processing food. They can also use their expertise in chemical processes to analyze the nutritional content of different foods and identify those with the highest levels of essential nutrients.

  1. Developing sustainable food production methods: Chemical engineers can use their knowledge of bioprocessing and agricultural engineering to develop new methods for growing food that is more sustainable and efficient.
  2. Identifying nutrient-rich foods: Chemical engineers can use their knowledge of food chemistry to analyze the nutritional content of different foods and identify those with the highest levels of essential nutrients.
  3. Developing new food preservation techniques: Chemical engineers can use their knowledge of food science and preservation techniques to develop new methods for preserving food that is more effective and efficient.
  4. Optimizing food processing methods: Chemical engineers can use their knowledge of chemical processes to optimize the methods used to process food, making it more nutritious, safe, and less wasted.
  5. Developing food fortification: Chemical engineers can use their knowledge of food chemistry and nutrition to develop new methods for fortifying food with essential nutrients, making it a “superfood” for survival.

In summary, chemical engineers can use their knowledge and skills to develop sustainable food production methods, identify nutrient-rich foods, develop new food preservation techniques, optimize food processing methods and develop food fortification to help in discovering superfoods for survival.
