Kwaliteit kipdrumsticks: Effect van antimicrobiële verpakking

27 februari 2015

Researchers at the University of Gaziantep in Turkey studied the effects of antimicrobial agents (nisin, chitosan, potassium sorbate (PS) or silver substituted zeolite (AgZeo)) incorporated into low density polyethylene (LDPE) on the physicochemical and microbial quality of chicken drumsticks stored at 5°C for 6 days.
Active multilayer bags (LDPE/polyamide/LDPE-containing 2% antimicrobial agent) were used to pack chicken drumsticks under vacuum.
They found that the bag including chitosan or nisin can be suggested as a suitable packaging material for chicken drumstick to increase safety and quality. An article about the research is published in Food Control.
