Opportunities for nanotechnology in food and feed

Nanoparticles exist in nature, and humans are exposed to these particles on a daily basis. Today it is possible to deliberately create matter with very small dimensions and nanotechnology can provide ways to modify the composition of food and feed, and packaging materials, at a very small scale. This may allow for the development of new foods and improving food processing and packaging in ways that will benefit consumers.

Compared to inactive people, the ‘weekend warriors’, who meet the weekly physical activity recommendations in just one or two sessions, have about a 30% risk reduction.
