Food Companies Explore Nanotechnologies For Advanced Nutrient Delivery, Bioavailability

October 8, 2009: 03:05 AM EST
The application of advanced nanotechnologies in the food processing industry is beginning to have an impact on raw material sourcing that could lead to major changes in how food products affect human physiology. Although nanotechnology is in its infancy, as this article points out, food companies are exploring its potential as a nutrient delivery option (nanoencapsulation) and for enhanced nutrient availability in the intestinal tract. For example, German chemical manufacturer BASF is making nano-scale synthetic lycopene as a food additive that is more easily absorbed by the body and has a longer shelf life.
