Nanotechnology and Food

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.

This website is good because it is a .org website and it contains a graph which displays the evolution of nanotechnology from 2000- 2020. The four nanostructures/ nanosystems are Passive nanostructures (2000), Active nanostructures (2005), Systems of nanosystems (2010) and Molecular nanosystems. This Website Interests me because it explains how nanotechnology evolved from being only able to perform one task to be able to have thousands of moving parts to multiple jobs at once. I find it amazing that something so

small is able to do such big things that us humans can’t do on our own.

 

This website displays the many advantages of using nanotechnology like low cost and faster speeds. This website also displays the disadvantages and cons of nanotechnology such as how it will affect rich and poor.
