Nanomaterials for Food Packaging

Due to the range of advanced functional properties nanomaterials are increasingly being used in the food packaging industry. Nanotechnology-enabled food packaging contains improved packaging, active packaging and smart packaging. Few studies have been published regarding the potential interaction of nanomaterial-based food contact materials (FCMs) with food components.  The migration of silver and copper from nanocomposites are used for their anti-microbial properties in food packaging. NMs have been primarily used as antimicrobials and improvement of barrier function. Both Of  The applications aim to extend the shelf life of packaged food products. By including nanoparticles in a polymer matrix Barrier function improvements are obtained.It slows down the diffusion of gases into the food. NMs may also be used to create intelligent packaging, NMs can alert the consumer to the presence of microbes, chemical contaminants or gases indicating spoilage by smart packing. Nano materials( NMs) have been incorporated into polymeric packaging materials such as polyamides (PA), nylons, polyolefins, ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer, polystyrene (PS), epoxy resins, polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polyethene terephthalate (PET). Metal and metal oxide NMs (silver, gold, zinc oxide, silica, titanium dioxide, alumina and iron oxides), carbon-based NMs and nano-sized polymers are most commonly used. the migration potential of NMs from food contact materials into food cannot be easily predicted because of its tiny size.
