Author(s): GO De Silva, AT Abeysundara and MMW Aponso
Abstract: Maintaining the quality of food products during its shelf life is a prominent problem in food industry. Incorporation of nanoparticles in food packaging is a novel technique which uses in the industry to enhance its mechanical and barrier properties. Further, these polymers are biodegradable thus depicts eco-friendliness than most of conventional food packaging materials which made out of fossil and fuel. This article reviews different nanoparticles which can be incorporated in to synthetic and biological polymers, methods of synthesizing and their antimicrobial activity towards foods. Moreover, nanocomposites films which can be used in food packaging industry and the mode of improving antimicrobial activity are emphasized.
