The relevance of the study is due to the fact that the training of specialists (especially undergraduates and PhDs) in any subject field requires deep knowledge in a wide range of generalized information obtained from various sources and represented in the easily perceived visual form. In this regard, this article aims at achieving the aim of examining the basics of information structuring and its presentation in the form of knowledge base when teaching university students and postgraduates the methods and technologies of food security when representing food safety foundations. Petrozavodsk State University gained a unique experience in creating the knowledge base for teaching students and postgraduates under the programs 35.03.01 Forestry, 06.06.01 Biological Sciences, 20.03.01 Technosphere Security in the methods and technologies of food enrichment from the perspective of food security. The knowledge base was created based on the information collected by means of an elaborate data search in literature sources, academic theses, regulatory and patent documents published in Russia and the most advanced countries in the field of food enrichment. Knowledge base represents systemized knowledge intended to teach university undergraduates and postgraduates food enrichment methods and technologies. The knowledge base in the area concerned is growing and will be used for the development of new patentable solutions.
