Safety of Titanium Dioxide in Food + Soft Robotics AI Technology – Xtalks Food Podcast Ep. 18

Safety of Titanium Dioxide in Food + Soft Robotics AI Technology

Will titanium dioxide soon be eliminated from thousands of foods in the EU? In this episode of the Xtalks Food Podcast, Sydney discusses the European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) review of titanium dioxide, a food additive found in ultra-processed and sugary foods. The team discusses the potential harms of titanium dioxide, safer alternatives and whether the EFSA’s review will encourage the FDA to re-evaluate the additive. 

Also in this episode, Mira talks about Soft Robotics’ $10 million investment in SoftAI, a patented technology that uses 3D vision, soft grasping and artificial intelligence to give industrial robots the hand-eye coordination of humans. The team learns how SoftAI allows automation of bulk picking processes and discusses whether more technology will help or hurt the food supply chain.
