Innovative edible film from biopolymers

Partner: Waiting for up-scale production and commercialization

About research: Department of Food Technology, Faculty of Science, Chulalongkorn University has various research studies regarding the development of carbohydrate and protein based edible films. Those films can be used as food packaging, where they can readily be consumed together with the foods, and are 100% biodegradable. These films provide unique characteristics, including a high gloss and transparent appearance, good barrier properties, and can incorporate desirable compounds, such as antioxidants and antimicrobial agents, in order to increase the shelf life of the food products.
