Antimicrobial Food Packaging Film
Jan-22-20
An innovative antimicrobial composite film could help reduce the instances of foodborne illnesses.

Developed by a team from Penn State, the film is made up of an antimicrobial layer that has been bonded to a sheet of clear plastic commonly used to vacuum-pack foods. The layer itself is made from a pullulan-based biopolymer that has been infused with the broad-spectrum antimicrobial compound Lauric arginate. The resulting film can be used to package food and safely kill a variety of toxins on meat during refrigerated storage.
