  • NOT AVAILABLE
A technical overview discussed the rationale for using edible films for preventing moisture loss from films while allowing permeability of oxygen and carbon dioxide to prevent anaerobic bacterial growth within the encased food. Detailed attention also is given to the characteristics of the types of edible films, covering specific polysaccharide, protein, and lipid films or blends of these. Moisture-, gas-, and solute-barrier properties are discussed, as well as the use of film additives. Further research needs are identified.(wz)
