Consumers against nanotech in food, says BfR

Abstract:
The majority of consumers do not think that nanotechnology should be used in food applications, according to a survey from German risk assessor BfR, and they are more likely to trust information from consumer groups than politicians and businesses.

It has already found uses in several industries, including food, nutritional ingredients, and packaging. The European Food Safety Authority was recently asked by the European Commission to provide a scientific opinion on safety.

The survey, commissioned by BfR, found that 69 per cent of respondents were against the use of nanoadditives in spices to prevent them from becoming lumpy; and 84 per cent rejected the idea of making foods look appealing for longer through the use of nanoparticles.
