Nanotechnology found in popular foods, despite repeated denials by regulator

 

Popular lollies, sauces and dressings have been found to contain nanotechnology that the national food regulator has long denied is being widely used in Australia's food supply.

For many years, Food Standards Australia and New Zealand has claimed there is "little evidence" of nanotechnology in food because no company had applied for approval. It has therefore not tested for nor regulated the use of nanoparticles.

Frustrated at the inertia, environment group Friends of the Earth commissioned tests that found potentially harmful nanoparticles of titanium dioxide and silica in 14 popular products, including Mars' M&Ms, Woolworths white sauce and Praise salad dressing.


Just a added note Nanotech applies to even here in the Americas .
