NEXT HOMEWORK – To be given 15/06/17



Write an NEA style essay based on the food science activity/practical: Caramelisation. This time your homework will have 2 parts:

  • Undertake your own research into the science of caramelisation, use books and/or the internet. Keep this to hand in.
  • Write an essay 2 A4 pages long including the research your did and where you found out your info etc.


Use a word processor to type up your essay and email to or print and bring in on Wednesday 7th June.

Make sure you structure the essay in the usual format (see essay structure below) and use scientific and technical language and write in-depth.

This is a food science essay so needs to be detailed and include food science. It is essential practice for a significant part of your GCSE.

This time any essays submitted without food science terms will be a fail.

Bring this is to the next lesson on Wednesday 7th June.
