WHY MILK IS GOOD FOR US?
Resources
intro & conclusion
Importance of packaging
& Milk products
Previous methods in
the packaging of milk
The mechanism of
nano-technology
Advantages & disadvantages of nano-technology
What is...
IMPORTANCE
OF
Prevents the product from being contaminated by airborne micro-organisms.
Importance Of Packaging
As aseptic shelf-safe cartons, for milk, to be delivered over long distances without refrigeration or preservatives.
Preventing Oxidation
(packaged in a modified atmosphere with a novel palladium-based oxygen removing catalyst and stored for eight weeks at 50°C.)
Example Of Milk Packaging
TETRA PAK
Other types of packaging
Milk is an important and significant source of protein, vitamin and mineral.
Bone Health
Dairy products provide calcium, which is essential for bone growth and development.
Teeth
In 1884, Doctor Hervey Thatcher, an American inventor from New York, invented the first glass milk bottle, called 'Thatcher's Common Sense Milk Jar', which was sealed with a waxed paper disk.
Mmm..That
looks YUMMY
:P
INDEED!
Gulp..gulp..
1932 - Plastic-coated paper milk cartons were introduced commercially.

Mid 1950s - Cardboard tops were banned because it was said unhygienic in some locations.

Lengthen shelf life of milk products
Nanoemulsion technology can be used to decontaminate food packaging equipment.
Better antimicrobial effects.
Advantage of Nano-packaging compared to previous packaging
Nano food packaging materials may extend food life, improve food safety, alert consumers that food is contaminated or spoiled, repair tears in packaging, and even release preservatives to extend the life of the food in the package.
One reason: SURFACE AREA!

Another reason is NANOMATERIAL behave differently from bulk materials of the same chemical.
Think about it this way:
Which dissolves faster in your coffee?
Communicate the quality of the food within the package through devices either incorporated in the packaging or attached to the packaging.
Potential NANOSENSORS could indicate
Temperature
Freshness
Ripeness
Contaminants/pathogens
Right on the package!
“Smart” packaging
OR

SUGAR CUBE

FINE SUGAR
SPOILED
Mechanical strength
Dimentional stability
Thermal stability
Chemical resistance
Flame retardancy
Electrical conductivity etc.
Nano-scaled additives in polymers; Potential increased performance
Nanocomposite coating on the packaging material is designed for interaction/reaction with the food
Reduction of the oxygen level in the packaging
Preserving agent or addition of flavourings

Nanotechnology and active food packaging materials
Few disadvantages is associated with the incorporation of nanoparticles.
Price
Nanocomposites is more expensive - but this is changing.
Ethics
Not fully control over the consequences of nanoparticles on the environment and human.
DISADVANTAGES
(Christop Meilli, Lebensmittel‐Technologie (6/2008), pages 24‐26)
In terms of Food safety:
Nano inside = nanotechnology directly comes into the consumer stomach via food products.
most packaging, nanoparticles are integrated into a matrix and therefore are immobile, except;
Active packaging: particles can migrate into the food products.
