In this issue of Inside Food, we find out what nanomaterials could mean for the future of nutrition, question whether or not collagen-enhanced food can live up to its health claims, and investigate the sustainability of edible insects. 

We also find out about the expansion of the edible insects market from Eat Grub, ask why palm oil is still so widely used given its ecological impact, explore whether sweeteners could be more damaging than assumed, and learn why vertical farming could be the future of agriculture. 

Finally, we take a look at Australia's investment in the next stage of agriculture, discover how nanotechnology is being used to improve plant genetic engineering, examine the top meal replacement drinks, and hear about the possibilities of predictive maintenance.
