This website names the benefits of nanotechnology in food. They explain it in 4 major categories: Agriculture, Food Processing, Food Packaging, and Supplements. In the category of agriculture, the website said that nanotech would help with delivery of products and nanocapsules can be used as pesticides and fertilizers. Under the category of food processing, it explains that nanocapsules can be used to add flavour more easily. Under the category of food packaging, they explained that with nanoparticles they could make packaging stronger and they could also use nanosensors to check the temperature and moisture inside a package. In the last category of supplements, they explained that nanocochleates can be used to deliver more nutrients and good things and the taste will not be changed.
