Food safety, security and control

Food safety is an umbrella term that encompasses several aspects of handling, preparation and storage of food to forestall unhealthiness and injury. Included under the umbrella are chemical, microphysical and microbiological aspects of food safety. A priority of food chemical quality is control of allergens which can be life threatening to some people that are highly sensitive. Other chemical properties of food such as vitamin and mineral content are also important and affect the overall quality of the food but are not as significant in terms of food safety. To prevent injury, the absence of foreign microphysical particles is crucial. Microphysical particles such as glass and metal can be hazardous and cause serious injury to consumers. Pathogenic bacteria, viruses and toxins produced by microorganisms are all possible contaminants of food and impact food safety.

Food security has been defined by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN) as; "Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nourishing food which meets their dietary desires and food preferences for an energetic and healthy life.
