Title: SMART FOOD PACKAGING
Keywords: nanotechnology, packaging, biosensors, indicators
Abstract: Nanotechnology is used for food packaging in food industry. Smart packaging can be defined as a new approach for food packaging system. This packaging system can arranged its condition according to environmental changes (like temperature and moisture) and it can be warned consumer when food is contaminated. In this paper nanotechnology, developments on packaging system are defined briefly and than depending on this knowledge smart packaging system is defined. Smart materials and smart package devices are defined for better understanding how smart packaging system is working. Finally food packaging samples are given.
