Use of polymers from renewable sources for food packaging applications is steadily growing. However, as compared to thermoplastic synthetic polymers, they present problems when processed with traditional technologies and show inferior performances in terms of functional and structural properties. This review paper focuses, in its first part, on current issues related to processing, such as thermoplasticization of starch and proteins, extrusion of films and foams. In the second part, the… Expand
