Excerpt: “The inclusion of antimicrobial agents into the biopolymer-based edible films has been a significant advancement in active food packaging technology. It is exceptionally efficient in inhibiting or killing the pathogenic/spoilage microbes causing food contamination. It can reduce the potential undesirable flavors produced due to the direct incorporation of active compounds in foods. ”
