Abstract
Horticulture sector was playing a pivotal role in fostering world economic revenue. Most importantly this sector also finds a new route for reshaping a healthier world. Rising trends towards health-conscious eating habits have evoked the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables as an available option for better, healthier and smarter that meet modern lifestyle and needs. Now a day’s nanotechnology became a one of the most important tools and an efficient option for extending the shelf life of foods. Reducing particle size to nanometric scale gives materials distinct and improved properties compared to larger systems. For food applications this technology allows the incorporation of hydrophilic and lipophilic substances with antimicrobial and antioxidant properties with the help of these we can increase the shelf life of disease products. Edible coatings are usually prepared with natural polymers that are non-toxic, economical and readily available. This review summons a comprehensive and current overview of the widely available information and recent advances in nanotechnology.
