Introduction to the Market for Nanotechnology in Food Packaging–In both rich and emerging countries, the packaging and food industries have grown at an exponential rate during the previous decade. Food is an edible material obtained from an animal or a plant that provides essential nutrients such as proteins, carbs, minerals, lipids, and vitamins for life, energy, and growth.
Because food is a perishable item, contamination and deterioration can occur at any point along the food supply chain. Chemical, physical, or biological factors can all play a role.
The Food Packaging Industry Benefits from Nanotechnology
Richard Feynman initially introduced the notion of nanotechnology in 1959, and Norio Taniguchi coined the phrase in 1974. Fabrication, characterization, and manipulation of nanoscale molecules are all part of nanotechnology (1-100 nm).
Nano systems and nanomaterials are the focus of this technology. Nanomaterials are defined as materials with a nanoscale dimension, and they are divided into three types: nanofibers, nanoparticles, and nanoplates. Packaging, nanoelectronics, biomedical, security sensors, paints, textiles, cosmetics, medical and healthcare, paper, construction, explosives and weaponry, and lubricants are just a few of the applications for nanotechnology.
Applications of Nanotechnology in the Food Industry
As nanotechnology is the study of extremely small particles, it has a significant impact on the food packaging business. Nanomaterials such as titanium nitride nanoparticles, silver nanoparticles, Nano-zinc oxide, Nano-clay, and Nano-titanium dioxide are all available on the market as functional additives for the food packaging sector.
