Nanotechnology in Food Science

Nanoscience and nanotechnology are new frontiers of this century and food nanotechnology is an emerging technology. Food technology is regarded as one of the industry sectors where nanotechnology will play an important role in the future. The development of new products and applications involving nanotechnologies holds great promise in different industrial sectors, Nanotechnology may revolutionize the food industry by providing stronger, high-barrier packaging materials, more potent antimicrobial agents. Several possibilities exist to exploit the benefits of nanotechnologies during different phases of the food chain with the aim to enhance animal nutrition and health. Several complex set of engineering and scientific challenges in the food and bioprocessing industries for manufacturing high quality and safe food through efficient and sustainable means can be solved through nanotechnology. Bacteria identification and food quality monitoring using biosensors; intelligent, active, and smart food packaging systems; and Nanoencapsulation of bioactive food compounds are few examples of emerging applications of nanotechnology for the food industry.
