    Bio-nanocomposites for food packaging applications

    Multilayer nanocomposites for rigid food packaging applications include beer bottles, carbonated beverages, and thermoformed containers. Typical types of food packaging application of multilayer structures of polymer/clay nanocomposites are shown schematically in Fig. 11. The first type of multilayer is a traditionally used one composed of a

    Reduction of packaging waste has been a strong motivation for replacing plastic packaging materials by biodegradable materials from renewable sources during the last decades. The efficiency of biopolymer films in food packaging has however been limited by their poor mechanical properties and by their moisture sensitivity. Improving the barrier and tensile properties is a major challenge that

    New bio-nanocomposite materials for food packaging applications

    Antimicrobial polymeric bio-nanocomposites are very useful for inhibiting the growth of polluting micro-organisms in packaging, thus ensuring longer shelf life of food products and improved food safety. In particular, by adding silver nanoparticles to polymers, it is possible to produce films with good mechanical, thermal and barrier properties.

    In food packaging, a major emphasis is on the development of high barrier properties against the diffusion of oxygen, carbon dioxide, flavour compounds, and water vapour, said the researchers. The use of nanocomposite formulations is expected to considerably enhance the shelf-life of many types of food.
