Notes for FDNS 4630 CRN15786 (8/12/2016) Instructor: Dr. Hea Jin Park TA: Ms. Xi Fang **Food and Culture by Kittler 6 th or 7th edition are recommended, however you do not need the book for the course. **The course will consist of three parts: Introduction, Religion, and Region **The exam questions come from lecture. Every lecture will have handouts. Some questions will also come from guest lecturers. **There will be 4 lab classes: Indian, Ghanian, Korean, and Columbian. We each can choose 2 labs because there are too many of us. This course will be focused on looking at cultures objectively, since it’s impossible for us to understand how and why some people’s cultures are a certain way. We will not be criticizing. We will be talking about the relationship between culture and nutrition. What is the most common food in the states? French fries. The USA’s McDonalds website: The Big Mac is popular. It’s composed of beef patties. The UAE’s McDonalds website: Also offers a similar beef patty Big Mac. This website has “your right to know” where you can ask the company questions. “Halal” chicken is very important to them. They use 100% halal meat. And all of their products are Halal certified. (Slaughtered in a humane and quick way in the name of Allah) The USA’s McDonalds website doesn’t certify or claim any US menu items as Halal. Although they both offer Big Macs, their claims and food processes are very different. If McDonalds didn’t want to offer Halal products, they couldn’t open a store in UAE. Now, looking at India’s McDonalds website, we notice that India doesn’t offer the Big Mac. In India, the majority of the population is Hindu and don’t eat beef. “In line with its respect for local culture, India is the first country in the world where McDonalds does not offer any beef or pork” The sausage that they offer is chicken sausage The common denominators in the difference of food items at different country’s McDonalds are: religion/culture Even though we are familiar with McDonald’s menu, the country that you’re in determines what food items are offered. Food behavior is most affected by religion and regions.
