Abstract

In recent decades, technoscientific innovation has pushed the food boundaries to a new frontier of nanofood. Following a close examination of the most relevant applications of nanotechnologies in the food processing sector, this article means to discuss firstly the role of labelling as a legal instrument in the area of food communication. It is meant to aim at protecting the informed choice of the citizen by conveying knowledge and responsibility in the relationship between the entrepreneur and the consumer. Therefore, this paper deals with the regulatory discipline adopted by Europe on the labelling of nanomaterials, as well as drawing a comparison with the different US regulatory model. Lastly, it debates the most relevant problems that emerged following the policy-decisions made on the matter.
