The Department of Nutrition and Food Science was established in January 2005 upon a rich heritage of Aggie leadership in nutrition and food science.  In creating the Department, the state of Texas and Texas A&M University recognized the importance of the disciplines of nutrition and food science in maintaining health and preventing diseases.
