ACTIVE PACKAGING FOR PRECUT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

ACTIVE PACKAGING FOR PRECUT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

ACTIVE PACKAGING FOR PRECUT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

ITENE has developed a combination of active ingredients (citral, hexanal y linalool) with antimicrobial activity, which presents a synergistic effect for the preservation of foodstuffs, therefore extending the shelf life of packaged foodstuffs.

The aforementioned composition can be applied to packages for foodstuffs, for example via injection or extrusion, or as a coating; thus, obtaining active packages. Once applied on the package, the active ingredients of the composition are released towards the headspace, thus exerting their effect of preserving the packaged food for longer time.

Such active packages are preferably used for the packaging of fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly precut and peeled fruits and vegetables.  The efficiency of these active packages has been validated for precut fruit.
