Chapter 2 Structure and Function of Protein-Based Edible Films and Coatings

  title={Chapter 2 Structure and Function of Protein-Based Edible Films and Coatings},
  author={Kirsten Dangaran and Tomasula and Phoebe X. Qi}
Research and development on films and coatings made from various agricultural proteins has been conducted over the past 20 years, but is of heightened interest, due to the demand for environmentally-friendly, renewable replacements for petroleumbased polymeric materials and plastics. To address this demand, films and coatings have been made from renewable resources, such as casein, whey, soy, corn zein, collagen, wheat gluten, keratin and egg albumen. Those made from agricultural proteins… CONTINUE READING
