Ontologies

Coordinated development of standardized ontologies for unambiguous characterization of domains of inquiry.
Ontology of Sustainability

To include all major classes of known sustainability issues as well as mappings to Food Processing ontologies, along with methods used to measure specific sustainability goals (e.g. water/energy consumption, carbon production, sidestream utilization, etc)

Ontology of Food Production

To include all major classes of food production and agricultural methods (e.g. inputs, yields, farming practices, etc; machines and processes used to carry out these methods; as well as mappings into relevant ontologies like Environmental and Sustainability Ontologies)

Ontology of Food Processing

To include all major classes of food production and processing methods (e.g. energy/mass transfer, fermentations, matrix separations and manipulations, etc; machines and processes used to carry out these methods; as well as mappings into relevant ontologies like Food Structures and Food Bioactive Molecules, and Environmental and Sustainability Ontologies).

Ontology of Fermentation

To include all major classes of fermentation as well as the organism, environment, and substrates needed for the execution of fermentation.

Ontology of Food Molecular Components

To include all major classes of bioactive molecules, the foods known to contain them, as well as mappings to Food Structure Ontologies and Ontologies of Bioactivity.

Ontology of Food Structure

To unambiguously describe the macroscopic, microscopic, and molecular structures of foods relative to functional/organoleptic properties and bioavailability of nutrients and bioactive molecules.

Ontology of Sensation

To include all major classes of sensory descriptive terms that would be used to describe the sensory qualities of any particular event. IE when drinking a cider or eating a meal.

Ontology of Eating

To include all identifications and classifications of eating behaviors. The ontology can be found on GitHub located in a repository titled ic-Foods/uc_eating. https://github.com/ktaji/uc_Eating
