Picture of The Future of Food

The Future of Food

Author(s): Mustafa Bayram, Çağlar Gökırmaklı

Book Description

The destiny of humans is parallel to the destiny of food. If the latter is available, then the former will also be present. The definition of food today is very different from that of our ancestors, who saw it as a nutritious thing that may obtainable through collecting or planting. However, today, food can be modified genetically and made through molecular synthesis.

This book discusses the future of food, and explores the context of novel definitions of food through horizon scanning. It considers the most cutting-edge developments in the food industry, including lab-meat, nano-engineered foods, vertical agriculture, foodomics, and Marsfoods. The book also investigates new food engineering processing techniques, future technologies, and future consumption trends.
