Antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of edible zein films incorporated with lysozyme, albumin proteins and disodium EDTA
In this study, partially purified lysozyme was incorporated into zein films in combination with chickpea albumin extract (CPAE), bovine serum albumin (BSA) and disodium EDTA. The zein films showed an inherent free radical ...
Development of flexible antimicrobial zein coatings with essential oils for the inhibition of critical pathogens on the surface of whole fruits: Test of coatings on inoculated melons
This study aimed to develop essential oil (EO)-containing antimicrobial coatings for the inhibition of pathogenic bacteria contamination on fruit peels. Incorporation of eugenol (EUG), carvacrol (CAR), and thymol (THY) ...
Application of active zein-based films with controlled release properties to control Listeria monocytogenes growth and lipid oxidation in fresh Kashar cheese
The antimicrobial and antioxidant potential of zein and zein-wax composite films having different release profiles for lysozyme and mixture of lysozyme, catechin and gallic acid were tested on cold-stored fresh Kashar ...
Antimicrobial potential of polylysine in edible films
(Japanese Society for Food Science and Technology, 2011)
The antimicrobial activity of edible films from whey proteins, alginate, zein and chitosan incorporated with polylysine (PL) and PL- ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (Na 2EDTA) combination have been tested on different ...
Incorporating phenolic compounds opens a new perspective to use zein films as flexible bioactive packaging materials
(Elsevier Limited, 2011-03)
To eliminate their classical brittleness and flexibility problems zein films were plasticized by incorporation of different phenolic acids (gallic acid (GA), p-hydroxy benzoic acid (HBA) or ferulic acids (FA)) or flavonoids ...
Development of flexible zein-wax composite and zein-fatty acid blend films for controlled release of lysozyme
The aim of this study was controlled release of lysozyme by modification of hydrophobicity and morphology of zein films using composite and blend film making methods. The incorporation of beeswax, carnauba or candelilla ...
