For the first time scientists can observe the nano structure of food in 3D

Scientists from the University of Copenhagen and the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland have, for the first time, created a 3D image of food on the nanometer scale. The method the scientists used is called ptychographic X-ray computed tomography. It has promising prospects as a more detailed knowledge of the structure of complex food systems could potentially save the food industry large sums of money and reduce food waste that occurs because of faulty production.
