The Use of Biobased Active Packaging Components in Biopolymers

Mehmet Seckin Aday


Although petroleum based packaging materials are widely used in food technology, the alternative materials can be considered due to the environmental concerns and changes in petroleum prices. Biobased polymers, which seems as one of these solutions, could not reach the desired level because of their low mechanical and barrier properties. Therefore, biobased active components can be added to these polymers to ensure the desired properties of films. In addition, these active components can extend the shelf life of the packaged foods. In this review, the use of biobased active components in biobased polymers are summarized.
