Nanofood: Nanotechnology In Food

Remember the debate over genetically modified food? The debate over nanofood - food using nanotechnology - is just heating up. You're probably already ingesting nanoparticles. But what will they do to you? Andy Park has the story.

Nanotechnology is a growing field - and it's just getting in to your food. The promise of longer lasting bread, super-low-salt soy sauce, even smart blob that can be made to taste like anything; all been part of the highly speculative future of nanofoods.
