To What Extent is Nanotechnology Applied in Today's Global Food Industry?

Abstract:
Will tomorrow's food be designed by shaping molecules and atoms? Of course, the use of nanotechnology in consumer products continues to grow rapidly, but at the same time nano food development still remains in its early stages with few products appearing on the global market.
It is expected that the applications for nanotechnology in the food industry will be a little bit slower due to narrow profit margins on food and food ingredients. Nevertheless, a large number of manufacturers are keeping an eye on the technology, either by conducting their own commissioned or in-house research, or by simply adopting a more ‘let's wait and see' policy.

In a June 2010 FLEXNEWS article "Nanoscience - A Pioneering Technology with Increased Applications Making Food Better and Less Expensive", our journalists interviewed Dr. George Burdock of the Burdock Group, a consultant firm based in Orlando, Florida, to find out what the current state of affairs for food nanotechnology could be. Dr. Burdock answered various questions on nanoscience and provided his opinion on what the near future for nano food could look like.
