Consumers have fewer concerns over packaging using nanoparticles than food utilizing the same technology, according to new study.
The goal of the study from ETH Zurich's Institute for Environmental Decisions (IED), which was published in the journal Appetite, was to identify which food applications are more likely to be accepted by the public and which ones less likely.
The researchers argue that it is important to take public views of nanotechnology into account at its early stage of development to avoid some of the problems that genetically modified (GM) technology has been faced with.
They claim that their findings can help identify the food applications for which future public debates on nanotechnology could focus on.
