Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Nano in Food Overview of Food Nanotechnology Nanotechnology is defined as, "The design, characterization, production, and application if structures, devices, and systems by controlled manipulation of size and shape at the nanometer scale (atomic, molecular and macromolecular scale) that produces structures, devices and systems with at least one novel characteristic or propertiy." Application Includes current and furture Unkown Author,Top 10 Uses of NanoTechnology in Food.(2009, February 24). Retrieved from Several studies in recent years that have indicated that several nanoparticles might be harmful. A 2005 study in Environmental Science & Technology proved that even the lowest concentration of zinc oxide nanoparticles were toxic to human lung cells. Other studies have shown that tiny silver particles (15 nanometers) killed rats' liver and brain cells. They are more chemically reactive and more bioactive, because of their size, which allows them to penetrate cells easliy. Products should be at least labeled so consumers can choose whether they want to be part of this experiment.( David Biello,2008) Reference Benefits & Risks Basicly, the most thing we concerned focus on the health.Even though we knew that nanofood has lots of benefits, thereare still several potential problems that scientists do not figure out how to solve. For example, the food is covered by plastic imbued with clay to extend shelf life. However, we do not sure if some particles in the plastic will react with the food, and if it causes some problems. It is very importantto familiar with this issues, the government should take more attentionon it, and the regulation should be restricted Biello, D. (2008, March 13). Do Nanoparticles in Food Pose a Health Risk? Retrieved from Safety Precaution& Current Regulation Official Journal of the European Union, (2011, January 14). Commission Regulation on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. Retrieved from Maisanaba, S. (2014, April 1). Food and Chemical Toxicology. Retrieved from Food nanotechnology creates new possibilities for the food industry and generates big interests attracted people to concern what we eat today. The basic categories of nanotechnology in food can be divided by 4 sections: Agriculture, Food Processing, Food Packaging and Supplements. And this poster will focus more on the Food Packaging using nanotechnology. The improvement of plastic materials barriers,””The incorporation of active components that can deliver functional attributes beyond those of conventional active packaging, and the sensing and signaling of relevant information are three essential things in food packaging.(Note: Image is shown below) According to consumer safety concerns, it is important to evaluate the potential migration of packaging constituents into food and to assess their potential harmful substances for assessment. What it will be like in future Nanotechnology will transform the entire food industry in the next 20 years. The next challenge right now is to find out how effective existing regulatory frameworks are for looking at any novel effects associated with nanotechnologies. Being more safety and efficiency is next thing we need to concern. Sanderson, K. (2013, April 26). What you need to know about nano-food. Retrieved from 1. Contamination sensor :Reveal the existence of bacteria2. Antimicrobial packaging:Food films made with nano particles of zinc, calcium and other materials that kills bacteria3. Improve food storage:The barrier made from nano keeps food fresh4. Nutrient delivery:Nano-encapsulating prevents wastageof vitamins5. Green packaging:Nano fibers are antimicrobial and biodegradable6. Pesticide reductionIt will release pesticides slowly and reduce the chemical leakage7. Tracking, tracing, brand protection:Each individual packaging can be traced and can be detected. (unknown Author, February 24, 2009 ) In my opinion the application of nanofoods should be regulated by the government. Science is a double-edged sword, whether if it can help or not, it still has its usses. The only way to overcome these problems is testing and doing research. Nanofoods possess the ability to create nutritious meals replace the junk food that most of us love. It is good to prevent recurring health issues related to the comsuption of fast food. food can be changed to possess the important vitamins and other nutrients we need by using this technique. What we still need to fix is to keep the risks of nanofood to the lowest point. (Nanowerk,2015) Regulation if or not The antimicrobial properties of nanoparticles can transmit contaminants, which endangers the ecosystem. Their small size prevents them from being filtered out in a sewage treatment plant, they enter aquatic ecosystems where it is found they can kill or mutate fish embryos Environment Risks In 2008, 32 recommendations were made which cover the health, safety and commercialization of nanomaterials (Nanofood for thought, 2010). Nanoparticles that have health implications without a clear benefit are not used in manufacturing. A future precaution is to add labels to any product that contains nanomaterials by the end of 2014. In 2008, 32 nominations were made which include the health, safety and other nanomaterials (Nature Nanotechnology, 2010). Nanoparticles that have health potentialproblems without a specific benefit is not used in manufacturing. A future precaution is to add labels to any product that contains nanomaterials by the end of 2014. Nature Nanotechnology(2010, February 2). Retrieved from
