The fact that Belize-based lab Belcosta is a leading expert in the use of nanotechnology in the food industry is a testament to the company’s commitment to making our lives easier. With a new lab dedicated to the study of food safety and the production of genetically modified foods, we are all more knowledgeable on how to grow, process, and cook our food.
It is no surprise that Belcosta is also a leader in nanotechnology. The company’s name came about when the CEO came up with the idea to genetically modify food while using nanotechnology. Because genetically modified food (GMO) has been around for a long time, it’s not that surprising that there have been companies that have been genetically modifying foods for many years.
The key to this is that the GMO is not meant to create a new, unique taste, but rather to mimic the effects of the normal food by changing its chemistry. In other words, GMO foods can be treated with chemicals, pesticides, enzymes, and other chemicals that mimic the effect of the normal food. These foods are more likely to be consumed because of the new chemicals they contain.
