Is there a field of study called nutritional engineering? If not then what are your ideas as to why such a field of study doesn't exist?

Many fields of science have engineering sides where the science is used to find solutions to problems.

The science surrounding the field of nutrition is very large and advanced. I believe there is a need for an academic program that specifically uses the science surrounding the field of nutrition to solve problems that are relevant to the science of nutrition by focusing on the engineering of nutritional supplements.

Nutritional engineering should be a field of study developed by current scientists who are making nutritional products to solve problems that are relevant to the field of nutrition. Many scientists are engaging in nutritional engineering but may not be labeled as such. I think these scientists should create this field to pin point it's existence and provide a clear path for those who want to one day develop nutritional supplements as a means to solve problems relevant to the field of nutrition. When people ask what should I study if I want to create nutritional supplements they should be told nutritional engineering and that they will be taught how to engineer a specific nutritional supplement or supplements to be used as a solution to a particular problem or set of related problems.

Though I am not a nutritionist, chemist or a biologist and may not be correct, I believe that nutritional engineering should be a masters and PhD level of study.

What are your thoughts on this?

As soon as I read Monsanto and other like minded companies....I was done reading this thread....Who would want to help any agribusiness  genetically modify any more of our food supply?  
Isn't there enough frankenfood?

I'd rather be helping organic farmers prosper..by supporting their efforts and supporting my health.

I believe that GMOs are being used to implement eugenics which is the science of manipulating the length and quality of individual life cycles. I believe that GMOs are a neutral technology and are bine engineered to act as weapons to the individuals that consume them. For example, over time some GMOs cause damage to organs while other GMOs can make users sterile within three generations of their use. GMOs could be engineered to increase the length and quality of the life cycle but I believe they are currently being used as a weapon against targeted populations. I believe that GMOs are dressed up as being safe when they are really not.

Like any science Nutritional Engineering could be used for good or for bad. I would hope that it would be used for good and to increase the length and quality of the individual life cycle.

I didn't reply at first, but have to say that the term "nutritional engineer" screams at me as genetic engineering - meaning GMO "foods".  

I think your idea is fine.  Just not the term. I don't feel you can use a term that has already been corrupted and try to clean it up enough so that "nutritional engineering" would not be confused with "genetic engineering" as done by the big bad chemical and pharmaceutical companies.
