Seminar focuses on food nanotechnology
(Nanowerk News) The latest developments in nanotechnology and its potential for use in the food industry is the subject of a seminar on April 30 in London. “Does size really matter?” will be the issue addressed at the seminar, sponsored by the British section of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) in cooperation with the Society of Chemic Industry (SCI) and the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST). The seminar will be held at the SCI Lecture Theatre, London.
Sheri Schellhaass, IFT president, will present the latest developments and views on nanotechnology in the United States. Presenters from the U.S. and some of Europe’s leading nanotechnology associations and food industries will be in attendance. The seminar will address topics such as nanoscience and natural nanostructures in food, the potential for nanotechnology in food applications, and opportunities and barriers will also be featured.
Founded in 1939, the Institute of Food Technologists is a nonprofit scientific society with more than 20,000 individual members working in food science, food technology, and related professions in industry, academia, and government. IFT serves as a conduit for multidisciplinary science thought leadership, championing the use of sound science through knowledge sharing, education, and advocacy.
