Biodegradable films can be designed to contain natural antioxidants, vitamins and antimicrobials in order to extend shelf life of the product keeping the natural sensorial properties. The objective of this study was production and characterization of biodegradables films incorporated with clove essential oil (CEO) microcapsules. The CEO was encapsulated in s-cyclodextrin (s-CD) by freeze drying and spray drying methods. The encapsulation efficiencies were 277.17 and 575.49 mg CEO/ g of sample…
