The evolution of the nanotech revolution
The emerging science of nanotechnology is the next Big Bang in food formulation, processing and packaging.
In fact nanotech foods have already been tailored to solve nutritional problems in the developing world. One example is the use of nanotech encapsulation to bind nutrients in fortified salt fed to children in Morocco.
The build up to this brave new world of leveraging the science of the miniscule is already occurring, and as happens with any disruptive technology the consumer reaction against the coming revolution is starting to kick in.
