IFT International Food Nanoscience Conference 2009

June 6, 2009

Anaheim, CA

Nanotechnology has emerged as one of the most exciting research areas in decades as researchers have improved abilities to image, measure, model, control, and manipulate matter at dimensions of 1 to 100 nanometers.

Advances in nanotechnology are beginning to be implemented in food manufacturing, but skepticism and health concerns are also emerging. These concerns will have long-term effects on the ability of researchers to make progress in this promising field.

This conference presented an overview of the state of nanotechnology in select regions of the globe including Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
