The application of nano materials in agricultural industry has the potential to ensure food and nutritional security for the developing world, as they can potentially develop favourable interactions with various biomolecules. Nanotechnology consist of creating and manipulating organic and inorganic substance at the nanoscale. The manipulation of food polymers to provide improved food quality and safety. New ideas based on nanotechnology are being explored to develop product functionality and delivery efficiency. It promises to provide the means for designing nanomaterials which is made physical, chemical and biological properties. Application of nanobiotechnology exist in all of the traditional areas of biotechnology such as in the field of food and agriculture for example the design of biosensors for detecting pathogens, spores, meat tenderness, food spoilage and food adulteration and provide contamination free food and to ensure the consumer acceptability of the food with enhanced functional properties. This new field of technology will also arise a number of ethical and social issues as the new pathological agents or new ways of delivering them can be developed and can be used for many purposes. This review talks not only the current and future use of nanotechnology in the biological sciences, but also the significant ethical ramifications of such applications.
