Onderzoek: Biobased MAP presteert goed op industriële verpakkingsmachines

21 augustus 2014

Environmental concerns regarding food packaging have led to the development of more sustainable alternatives. Research at Ghent University in Belgium shows that several biobased plastics can contain and protect the food as well as maintaining its sensory quality.
The biobased packages showed sufficient gas barrier to guarantee the shelf-life of the MAP packed food products, even when materials with lower barrier properties were used. Furthermore, case studies at different companies (on industrial packaging lines) show that a successful entrance in the market will not be hindered by technical problems. An article about the research is published in Innovative Food Science & Emerging Technologies.
