Taking the NanoPulse -- What's for dinner? Nanotechnology, of course.
Nanotechnology is now officially more than just food for thought. It's actual, stick-to-your ribs, tasty food -- on the shelves now with more on the shopping list.
Check the numbers. Estimates put the current global nano-food market at $2.6 billion right. By 2010, experts say it could top $20 billion. Who's setting the menu? Major corporations around the world and a number of smaller companies, as well. One estimate suggests more the 200 companies have current research projects, including five of the top 10 food giants
