The wonders of nanotechnology

Abstract:
Small is set to change the face of food processing sector in the near future. Express Hospitality talks about how nanotechnology can increase the shelf life of processed foods.

Nanotechnology is concerned with the production and control of materials and objects on a nano-scale, which is, to say the least, small is set to change the face of food processing sector in the near future. According to Yashnanotech, a division of Yash Management & Satellite, the implementation of nanotechnology will increase the shelf life of processed foods drastically. Nano-packaging will be able to maintain the product's freshness while nano-encapsulation technology will allow for controlled release of the core or inner material.
