Technology committee and The House Of Lords Sciences blamed several food industries for being so secretive about the use of nanotechnology. They are keeping the use as low profile. Lord Krebs, chairman of the inquiry says that there is no danger, there is only a gap of knowledge.
Nanotechnology is termed as the use of very small particles. At very small size particles have unique properties and there is active investigation into how those properties arise. While nanotechnology is already widely employed for the manufacture of the range of products from odour-free socks to novel cancer therapeutic methods, they have long been regarded as a subject requiring further study to ensure their safety.
In the food industry, this nanotechnology can be used to enhance flavour and even to make processed foods healthier by reducing the amount of fat and salt needed in production. It is very regretting that the people from food industries are refusing the use nanotechnology in the area. It could lad to the backlash of the public in using this technology that could brings the benefits
