World of Food Science:
Volume 16 ̶ Nanotechnology
This issue of The World of Food Science provides an update on key issues by global experts about nanotechnologies that promise to revolutionise some aspects of foods, food quality, food safety and food processing. Four papers are provided on:
Nanomaterials in the food sector (Greiner et al.)
Detection and characterisation of engineered nanomaterials (Graf et al.)
Delivery of boactives by engineered nanometer-sized materials (Oehlke and Greiner)
Nanoscalar dispersion of antimicrobials: effect on food safety (Weiss).
Other features of this volume include:
