Abstract:
Nano-technology proved the recent innovative applications in the food industry. In the area of functional foods, nano-technology exposed to be an efficient method in the field particularly in the food industry. Nano-encapsulation is the most significant favourable technology having the possibility to ensure bioactive chemicals. Nano-sensor application in food industry is the booming applications for the food quality analysis and food tracing studies. Nano-emulsions display numerous advantages over conventional emulsions due to the small droplets size it contains high optical clarity, excellent physical consistency against gravitational partition and droplet accumulation, and improved bio-availability of encapsulated materials, which make them for food applications. This review paper highlights the applications of the current nano-technology research in nano-encapsulation, nano-sensors and nano-emulsions.
