8. Nanotechnology in the food industry continued

9. How much are you eating?

10. Engineered Particles

11. What is Nanotechnology?

12. Nanotechnology contributions to the food industry

13. Food Contact Materials

14. Potential Health Effects

15. References

16. How nanotechnology is enhanching every day foods we eat, food supply and demand

17. The use of processing properties of materials on a nano scale to achieve desired effects

18. (ENPs) Engineered Particles

19. Nature of ENPs - inorganic or organic materials

20. ENPs have larger surface to mass ratio, favourable as they achieve higher output of enhancements for their product

21. Nano-size water-insoluble substances +dispersion of forumations (ENPs) can provide more nutrients in drinking water

22. Adverse effects on Human health - study limited so far, so most foods that are being consumed have not much known side-effects in the long term

23. importance of researchers pursuing the study needed to combat bio terrorism from illness or pathogen spreading from products

24. (FCMs) Food Contact Materials are essentially food packaging, make up large part of current market for nanotechnology

25. Zip-Lock bags, Glad Wraps, Baking paper, Aluminium sheets for cooking

26. Nanotechnology such as Polymers, Plastics

27. Smart & Intillegent Packaging

28. Development in FCMs looks at their gas barrier properties, UV absorption, abrasion resistences, composition

29. Prevent health hazards with future development

30. Noway Company make thin polymer tag on product packaging that can conduct electricity to show temperature of product

31. Rapidly Expanding resources and Capabilities, nano sensors for product exposure or deterioration

32. Food Packaging

33. Nano-textured foods enhancements

34. Spreads/Mayonaise having low-fat or zero-sugar options with the same "creamy" taste as original product

35. safe for long distance transportation, enhancements to stay fresher longer
