This is the wholesome food position paper. It should be 7-10 pages (double spaced, no more than 12pt font with no more than 1.25″ margins). I want you to think about wholesome as it pertains to the topics we discussed and how your opinion has been impacted through those discussion and your research (what it was at the beginning of the term and how has it changed, strengthened or formed). You don’t have to address every topic, but several of them.
You should include at least 3 references – cite them using a recognized format in your field. (If nothing else, here is a style guide for the Journal of Food Science)
Author Guidelines for IFT Scientific Journals
Details for formatting references Manuscripts intended for all sections of the journal and
the two online journals must follow the name-year refer- ence format specified in Scientific Style and Format, 7th ed., cited above. Cite only necessary publications and use primary rather than secondary references when possible. It is acceptable to cite work that is “forthcoming” (that is, accepted but not published) with the pertinent year and volume number of the reference. Works that are “submit- ted” and under review are not to be cited. To serve JFS readership and subscribers, as you prepare your manu- script, please carefully consider papers published recently in the Journal of Food Science for relevance to your study.
(a) In text When the author’s name is part of the sentence struc-
ture, the citation consists of the year (in parenthesis) im- mediately following the name. Use “and others” rather than “et al.” In citations that are totally parenthetical, do not separate author and year with a comma. Use commas to separate publications in different years by the same au- thor. Cite two or more publications of different authors in chronological sequence, from earliest to latest.
Examples ● Smith (1943) showed that . . . : ● The starch granules are normally elongated in the milk
stage (Brown 1956). ● . . . work (Dawson and others 1964) has shown that . . . ● . . . work (Dawson and Briggs 1984, 1987) has shown
that . . . ● . . . work (Dawson 1984; Briggs 1999) has shown that . . . ● . . . work (Dawson 1984a,b) has shown that . . .
(b) In Reference section List only those references cited in the text. References are
listed alphabetically by the first author’s last name. Single author precedes same author with co-authors. When the author designation (name or names) is identical in two or more references, these references are sequenced by publi- cation date (earliest to latest). Type references flush left as separate paragraphs. Within a citation, do not indent man- ually, let the text wrap. Use the following format.

Smith JB, Jones LB, Rackly KR. 1999. Maillard browning in apples. J Food Sci 64:512-8.
