Nanotechnology in Food Is Focus of April 30 Seminar in London, England

London, England | Posted on March 17th, 2009

"Does size really matter?" will be the issue addressed at the seminar, sponsored by the British section of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) in cooperation with the Society of Chemic Industry (SCI) and the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST). The seminar will be held at the SCI Lecture Theatre, London.

Sheri Schellhaass, IFT president, will present the latest developments and views on nanotechnology in the United States. Presenters from the U.S. and some of Europe's leading nanotechnology associations and food industries will be in attendance. The seminar will address topics such as nanoscience and natural nanostructures in food, the potential for nanotechnology in food applications, and opportunities and barriers will also be featured.
