ABSTRACTAim: To analyze the applications of nanotechnology in food packaging Background: Food packaging is concerned with application of art, science and technology inpreparing the food products for market. Packaging protects food by acting as a barrier fromoxygen, moisture, dust etc. and thus extends the shelf life of food. With rapid growth in the foodpackaging industry there has been application of various technologies in this sector.Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at molecular level. It is beingincreasingly used for food packaging due to additional benefits. Methods: Secondary methods of data collection were used. Electronic search was carried out anddatabases such as BioMed Central and Science Direct were referred. There has been use ofsearch terminologies and Boolean operators. The search was guided by inclusion and exclusioncriteria. Findings: Nanotechnology has various applications in food packaging sector. These includenanolaminates, nanocoating, Ripsense labels, colorimetric lables, nanosensors etc. these arecapable of indicating the freshness of food products in various categories such as fruits,vegetables, dairy, meat products etc. These aim to make the lives of people convenient andenhance food safety for the consumer thereby increasing the shelf life of food. However, there ispossibility of nanoparticles leaching from packaging into food products. Consumers andregulatory bodies have raised concerns regarding the impact of nanoparticles on health of peopleand environment. Conclusion: Nanotechnology promises a more convenient future for consumers in the foodpackaging sector. However, the risks associated with it may decrease consumer acceptance.There is a need to have in place more appropriate laws and regulations for proper management ofnanotechnology in food packaging. 6
