Pistachio has a crucial economic value, but show loss of quality due to unfavorable conditions during storage. Active packaging is a relatively novel concept of packaging that changes the conditions of the packaged food to extend its shelf-life and improve its safety. Because Aloe vera gel has been recently explored as edible coating, the objective of the present study was to evaluate the ability of this gel to reduce/control the loss of post harvest fresh pistachio quality, compare with a…

Potential of Aloe vera gel coating for storage life extension and quality conservation of fruits and vegetables: An overview.

TLDR
Aloe vera gel coating alone or in combination with other organic compounds has shown great potential as a food-safe and eco-friendly coating for maintaining the quality of fruits and vegetables over extended period and reducing postharvest losses in the supply chain.

Antimicrobial activity of carboxymethyl cellulose–gelatin film containing Dianthus barbatus essential oil against aflatoxin‐producing molds

TLDR
Carboxymethyl cellulose–gelatin edible films with the ratio 4 to 1 was selected as the optimal film based on physical, mechanical, and physicochemical findings and was the best formulae for preventing three types of aflatoxin‐producing mold including A. parasiticus on pistachios for 6 months.

Novel edible coating based on aloe vera gel to maintain table grape quality and safety.

TLDR
This edible coating was able to reduce the initial microbial counts for both mesophillic aerobic and yeast and molds, which significantly increased in uncoated berries over storage, and to the authors' knowledge, this is the first time A. vera gel has been used as an edible coating in fruits.

Effects of an Edible Coating and Cold Storage on Shelf-life and Quality of Cherries

The effects of an edible coating, i.e. SemperfreshTM and cold storage on shelf-life and quality of cherries were studied. Two groups of cherries (Prunus avium) were coated just after harvest with 10

Use of Aloe vera gel coating preserves the functional properties of table grapes.

TLDR
Aloe vera gel coating, a simple and noncontaminating treatment, maintained the functional properties during postharvest storage of table grapes and significantly delayed the retention of ascorbic acid during cold storage or SL.

Antimicrobial effectiveness of bioactive packaging materials from edible chitosan and casein polymers: assessment on carrot, cheese, and salami.

TLDR
The intrinsic antimicrobial properties of chitosan (CH) were combined with the excellent thermoplastic and film-forming properties of sodium caseinate (SC) to prepare SC/CH film-formed solutions and films to study the performance of 2 biodegradable and edible biopolymers and their combination as natural packages for selected food products.
