Bruno Lamas, Lauris Evariste and Eric Houdeau Food additives are one major hallmark of ultra-processed food in the Western-diet, a food habit often associated with metabolic disorders. Among these additives, the whitener and opacifying agent titanium dioxide (TiO2) raises public health issues due to the ability of TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) to cross biological barriers and accu- […]

Lucy Criestig Don’t you just love the bright attractive colours of candies and sweets? Turns out there have been studies suggesting you’re more likely to buy and eat foods that are brighter or more vibrant in color. Titanium dioxide is the product developer’s answer to make that happen. … The pigment grade is also known […]

Eating Nano: Our Food Supply is Not Nearlt As Safe As We Would Like to Believe

Brita Belli Unbeknownst to just about everyone, nanoparticles made a quiet entrance into the nation’s food supply at least a decade ago. Nanoparticles are materials that are microscopic—significantly smaller than a red blood cell; and tens of thousands of times smaller than the width of a human hair. These particles can help deliver nutrients, ensure […]

Titanium Dioxide Particles Frequently Present in Face Masks Intended for General Use Require Regulatory Control

Eveline Verleysen et al. Although titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a suspected human carcinogen when inhaled, fiber-gradeTiO2 (nano)particles were demonstrated in synthetic textile fibers of face masks intended for thegeneral public … No assumptions were made about the likelihood of the release of TiO2 particles itself, since direct measurement of release and inhalation uptake when face […]
