  • During the 1953 Pharmacy Curriculum the Chair of Applied Chemical Analysis and Food Science-Toxicology was created. In 1965 after the returning to the career of 5-year the Chair was renamed as Chemical Analysis-Toxicology and Food Science. Subsequently, departments were created, with the integration of the Chair in the Department of Biochemistry, Animal Physiology, and Chemical Analyses and Food Science-Toxicology. However, due to the disparities in discipline members this department was dismembered appearing the Department of Food Science, Toxicology and Chemical Analysis.
  • The University Reform Law promoted a new management for departments, which culminated in 1987 with the creation of the knowledge areas. At that time the department was renamed to its current name of Department of Nutrition and Food Science, which involved the transfer of the teachings of Chemical Analysis to the area of Analytical Chemistry and those of Toxicology to that of Toxicology.
