Abstract

Nanobiotechnology can be a valuable tool for improving food safety. Natural antimicrobials can be incorporated into nanostructures for delivery and controlled release in food systems. The major nanostructural systems used for this are nanovesicles/nanospheres, nanoemulsions, nanofibers, and nanotubes. Characterization of nanostructures is achieved by particle size determination, zeta potential, electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, infrared spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction. Antimicrobial properties ...
