Influence of nanoparticles in microbial decontamination by novel technologies

Popularity of non-thermal food preservation methods are on the rise because of the possibility of preventing microbial contamination with minimal effect on nutritional and sensory properties of foods. Concomitant increase in nanoparticle applications as food additives invites questions about effects of nanoparticles on the non-thermal food processing methods for eliminating pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms.

Their studies aimed at bridging this knowledge gap, revealed the possibility of enhancing antibacterial effects of light and microwave by rod-shaped nano-gold or silver nanoparticles while the food grade TiO2 nanoparticle had little effect. Dr. Saji George’s presentation will cover general applications of nanomaterials in food and the relationship between nanoparticle properties and their interaction with electromagnetic radiations culminating in beneficial outcomes for food preservation.
