Nanotechnology regulations must be strengthened - Choice

Abstract:
Australia needs to toughen regulations on nanotechnology in food and food packaging, Choice says.

A new report by the consumer group says consumers can't tell which foods and packaging use sub-microscopic nanotechnology to improve shelf life or taste because Australia lacks adequate regulations and safety checks.

It says an estimated 150-600 nanofoods and 400-500 nanofood packaging applications are in use around the world.
