While nanoscale materials are extremely small (typically < 100 nanometers), they are certainly not insignificant. For the food industry, nanotechnology offers new nutrient delivery systems, improved packaging materials, enhanced food safety, and other novel applications. Are you intrigued by the science of small and want to know more? Then head to the 2011 IFT Annual Meeting & Foods Expo® in New Orleans this June. At IFT11, several scientific sessions will explore nanoscience and nanotechnology.
If you’re new to food nanotechnology or need a refresher, a primer session at 7:15 a.m. on Sunday morning will describe the fundamental concepts of science, engineering, and technology at the nanoscale level. Keep Reading
