Nanotechnology has the potential to impact on food processing significantly. This important book summarises current research in this area and provides an overview of both current and possible future applications of nanotechnologies in the food industry. Issues such as safety and regulation are also addressed.After an introductory overview, the first part discusses general issues such as risk assessment, the regulatory framework, detection and characterisation of nanoparticles in food. Part two summarises the wide range of applications of nanotechnology in food processing, including nanoscale nutraceutical delivery systems, nanoemulsions and colloids, nanoscale rapid detection devices for contaminants, nanofiltration and nanocomposite packaging materials.With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Nanotechnology in the food, beverage and nutraceutical industries is a valuable reference work for both food processors and those researching this expanding field.
