Book Description :

In this book we present ten chapters describing the synthesis and application of nanomaterials for health, food, agriculture and bioremediation. Nanomaterials, with unique properties are now being used to improve food and agricultural production. Research on nanomaterials is indeed revealing new applications that were once thought to be imaginary. Specifically, applications lead to higher crop productivity with nanofertilisers, better packaging, longer food shelf life and better sensing of aromas and contaminants. these applications are needed in particular in poor countries where food is scarce and the water quality bad. Nanotechnology also addresses the age old issue of water polluted by industrial, urban and agricultural pollutants. For instance, research produces nanomaterials that clean water more efficiently than classical methods, thus yielding water for drinking and irrigation. However, some nanomaterials have been found to be toxic. Therefore, nanomaterials should be engineered to be safe for the environment.

Each aspect of nanobiotechnology use is covered in depth, from food processing to packaging to safety and quality control. The authors outline the definition and history of nanobiotechnology and cover novel technologies for its use in the food industry, including the advantages and challenges for food scientists. Individual chapters focus on the food industry's use of nano-additives, nano-sensors, nano-encapsulation for nutrition delivery and considerations for commercialization. The potential hazards for nanoparticle use, as well as the future prospects of nanobiotechnology use in the food industry, are presented here in depth. Nanobiotechnology in Food: Concepts, Applications and Perspectives explores the emerging developments in nanotechnology which make it increasingly applicable to the food industry. Nanoparticles are applied during food processing to improve nutritional quality, flow properties, flavor, color and stability, and also to increase shelf life by decreasing the activity of microorganisms. Nanotechnology is important for the development of healthier foods with lower fat, sugar and salt levels, and to overcome many food-related diseases. This book shows how producers and manufacturers can make great strides in food quality and safety by using nanotechnology.

Book Description :

This book discusses nanotechnology, its benefits and risks affecting the environment we live in today, and is divided into three parts: Part-I dealing with Sustainability, Part-II describing Toxicological Impacts, and Part-III discussing Nanomaterial-based Adsorbents. The crucial challenge of sustainability in various environmental elements is a global problem. This draws upon various issues of nanotechnology which impact sustainability of food, clean environment, green house gases, raw materials extraction, manufacturing and automobile industry. Growth in the production of nanomaterials to suit any of these applications is commendable. However, this does not negate the growth in their toxic effects. The nanotoxicity research in areas like medicine and agriculture industry is reviewed in detail in this book. Part-II discusses the toxic nature of widely used nanomaterials. Nanomaterials are enormously used in environmental remediation due to some of their distinct properties. These properties are described and discussed. Part-III of the book highlights the highly reactive and adsorbent properties of nanomaterials that enable them to be a competent agent in water and pollutant remediation. This book is mainly intended for researchers and students to acquire fairly comprehensive understanding and appreciation of nanotechnology dominance in sustainability challenges, with the aim to give the anticipatory governance of nanomaterials in our society and environment.

This book reviews advanced nanotechnology in food, health, water and agriculture. In food, nanobiosensors display an unprecedented efficiency for the detection of allergens, genetically modified organisms and pathogens. In agriculture, nanofertilisers improve plant nutrition by releasing nutrients slowly and steadily. Nanomaterials synthesised using biomass such as fungi are further found remarkable to clean waters polluted by heavy metals. However, as newly introduced materials in the environment, nanoparticles may exhibit toxic effects, which are reviewed in this book. In the context of climate change, methods for water desalinisation are also presented.

Book Description :

Nanotechnology and nanomaterials have a range of potential applications in the food sector that may offer benefits to both consumers and industry. But the public's attitude towards food can be influenced by a fear of novel risks, the level of trust in the effectiveness of regulation and other wider social and psychological factors, and use of nanotechnologies in the food sector may well elicit some of these concerns. The Science and Technology Committee criticises the food industry for failing to be transparent about its research into the uses of nanotechnologies and nanomaterials. Transparency and honesty are key components for ensuring public trust in both food safety and scientific developments. The Committee also urges the Government and Research Councils adequately to fund research into potential health and safety risks arising from the use of nanomaterials in the food sector. There are significant gaps in the understanding of how nanomaterials impact on the human body, particularly the gut, and it is not currently possible to predict what risks specific nanomaterials may present. The report recommends that the Food Standards Agency should maintain a publicly available register of food and food packaging containing nanomaterials. This register could be made available online. Nanomaterials should be defined clearly in food legislation to ensure that all uses of nanomaterials in food are subject to appropriate risk assessment procedures. The Committee also raises concerns about the potential for the illegal importation of food products containing nanomaterials not approved for use in food in the EU.
