hile feeding 9 billion people by 2050 is a challenge

considering the existing production and technologies,

developing nutrition-rich and healthy foods for future is a bigger

challenge. With the advancement of science, whereas some food

scientists and engineers are exploring food structures at micro/

nano-scale to better understand the functionality of molecules,

some are investigating the use of 3D printing for formulating and

smoothdelivery of nutrients in future foods for extreme conditions

such as in space. It is extremely important to understand the

structures of land and aquatic foodmaterials for their functionality

during the food production and processing conditions to prepare

future foods, a taskneeds tobe takenupasa future foodteam. This

presentation will highlight linkages between the food structures,

structure-function relationship, conditions for stability and specific

areas to address for future foods.
