Hi how are you?

I'm new to the forum and I arrive from Portugal. I'm currently giving a course on food safety and I'm having trouble in finding and develope activities that would be interesting and usefull for my students.
it's a class of adults but not with a very high education so I woul like something that wasn't over worked but also not childish...

Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Dear Laudhina,

This is what we do:
first small lection about how food gets safe. you know: the pictures about expended bacterial growth and the 7 things to prevent bact growt (salt, preservatives, heating, cold chain, no food, acid/low pH, oxygen)

Then small groupes of 2-3 persons. Each group receive a food product and need to investigate why it is safe. The groups have to search this out for all products. After that discussion and results.
The products we use are: sauerkraut, baby food, beer in a can, canned vegetables, MAP packed product (bake off product), salt, fermented sausages, frozen vegetables (only the packaging)

Hope this is an idea for you too.

I have found "case studies" in cross contamination to be quite stimulating for the class and will often open the eyes of the line personnel. I will write or borrow a short scenario about a contamination issue, then the group will investigate the case and develop possible conclusions.
