Investigators at Academy of Sciences Report Findings in Food Technology (Electrospinning and electrospraying techniques: Potential food based applications)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Food Weekly News -- Data detailed on Food Technology have been presented. According to news reporting originating from Karnataka, India, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Electrohydrodynamic processes namely electrospinning and electrospraying are facile, cost effective and flexible methods that utilize electrically charged jet of polymer solution for production of fibers or particles at micron, submicron and nanoscale. The electrospun fibers and electrosprayed particles possess many structural and functional advantages."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the Academy of Sciences, "However, their use in the field of food processing and preservation remains less explored. This review provides a succinct discussion on the potential food based applications of electrospinning and electrospraying techniques such as encapsulation, enzyme immobilization, food coating and development of materials for filtration and active food packaging."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Further, the existing limitations and scope for future research are underscored."
