Nanotech projects for food sector outlined at conference
Nanoengineered products for the food sector -- including a smart RFID nano sensor -- took centre stage at a two day conference held 20-21 November in Braga, Portugal to discuss the science of the miniscule.
Hosted by the European Commission the conference, held 20-21 November targeted the commercialisation of products derived from techniques derived from the science of the miniscule.
Scientists and developers at the conference revealed some of the developments that could be important to the food sector if these are commercialised.
Nanotechnology is championed by several manufacturers for use in packaging to extend shelf life, or more controversally, for improving the nutritional content and impact of foods.
