After micro and macro nutrients ‘Nanonutrients' Promise health benefits
According to the latest issue of Food Technology magazine designer foods and functional foods are the order of the day. After mention of micro and macro nutrients nanonutrients are the emerging concept.

Remarkable achievements in nanotechnology show great potential for positively influencing human health. By enhancing solubility, improving bioavailability, and facilitating the controlled release and protecting the stability of micronutrients in food products, nanotechnology could be a successful method to design smart food systems.

Nanoparticles are excellent for rapidly delivering high concentrations of healthy, active ingredients directly to cell membranes.

International not-for-profit Institute of Food Technologists and advancing food and health through sound science published the article; Food Technology provides news and analysis of the development, use, quality, safety, and regulation of food sources, products, and processes.

Therefore people have more food for thought in the food sector.

I read some studies once about the application of homeopathic remedies to promote plant growth that had some positive results. Can't get much more Nano than that! In general I think nanotechnology is dangerous for living things and I don't want it around me.
