Functional ingredients such as vitamins, antimicrobials, antioxidants, flavorings, colorants and preservatives in different molecular and physical forms, such as polarities (e.g. polar, nonpolar, amphiphilic), have been widely utilized in food systems and packaging. The nanostructured nutraceuticals and bioactive compounds incorporated into nano-sized delivery systems are usually known as nanoadditives. These nanomaterials are designed to be added in various food and beverage systems or their packaging polymers matrix, to promote their characteristics and give them various activities, which are described briefly in this chapter.
