Nanotechnology in Agriculture and Food Industry

Nanotechnology is widely applied in our every day life and is altering the complete society. It has begun marching into the agriculture and food enterprise on the grounds that 2003 when United States Department of Agriculture posted the first roadmap in September 9, 2003. Research on this subject matter has skyrocketed over the last decade. It nearly covers each and every thing in the meals and agriculture industry, together with agriculture, irrigation/water filtration, food processing and packaging, animal feed, and aquiculture.  The food and beverage sector is a international multi trillion dollar industry. A latest estimate of the world in your price range have an effect on of nanotechnology is projected to be at least $3 trillion by way of 2020, which may additionally worker 6 million labors in the rising nanotechnology industries worldwide.

This is very beautiful and has driven many meals firms concerned in development and marketing of novel nanomaterial based products, and improving production efficiency, meals characteristics, taste and safety. Incredibly, there are heaps of products that have already been marketed and used in the meals enterprise over the previous decade. Majority of these products are designed “out-of-food” but “inside” meals industry, i.e. food contacting substances however now not at once ate up by way of people. No novel nanomaterials containing merchandise have been without delay put into human meals yet, without titanium dioxide and iron oxide that have been used as meals pigment and colorant respectively already. The vital reason is that rules and regulation is very restricted involving nano food, particularly due to complexity of nanomaterials and case-by-case legislating strategies  A deeper reason for the limited regulation is the poor information of toxicity and risk which novel nanomaterials should bring. Many studies focal point on in vitro toxicity of nanomaterials whilst very little in vivo toxicity data is available, now not to mention chronic effect of nanomaterials (especially metallic nanoparticles, NPs). At least countless gaps have to be filled: toxicity of nanomaterial to mammal cells, tissues/organs and continual effect to human body; migration of nanomaterials to food; degradation or environmental destiny of nanomaterials; bioaccumulation of nanomaterials and their affect on ecosystems.
