Anotace: Nanotechnology, today, characterizes medicine and food industry. It covers various aspects of food sector like fermentation, neutraceuticals but a greater influence has been observed in the sector of food safety. Nanoemulsions are being used in various fortification purposes such as calcium and rice bran oil. Nanotechnology has been extensively applied in transport vehicles using proteins and lipids to deliver bioactive nutrients. Various other sectors have been covered by this technology such as reinforcement and membrane formation processes which explores packaging area. It has also been found functional in the detection o toxic chemicals, heavy metals, pesticides and drug residues from food products. The present review articles focuses on the different areas of food sectors employing nanotechnology with its wide applications.
