Essentiële oliën voor biodegradeerbare verpakkingen

Since ancient times aromatic plants have been used in food and medicine. Currently, essential oils and their compounds are attracting great interest due to their proven ability to preserve food quality, to extend shelf-life and because they are natural.
Researchers at the National Institute of Health Dr. Ricardo Jorge in Portugal analyzed essential oils from basil, cinnamon and rosemary. They found that cinnamon essential oils exhibited the highest biological activity. Essential oils showed to have high antioxidant and antimicrobial activity and therefore, they have great potential as natural additives of food packaging. An article about the research is published in Industrial Crops and Products.
