Biologically Based Packaging Materials for Foods

  • Nielsen, Per Væggemose (Project Manager)
  • Bergenholtz, Karina P. (Project Participant)

Project Details


The objective is to initiate development of a new generation of biologically based packaging materials for selected foods (fruits, vegetables, fresh meats, and dariry products). These materials will be based on starch and microbial polymers.
All relevant food quality parameters describing the physical, chemical and mircrobial qualtity of package foods will be examined and used to evaluate the packaging materials. Additionally, it will be used for futher develpment of biopolymers. The research activities encompass the whole prodiction chain from selection of raw materil, through the processing of the bio-based materils, and finally the investigations of the suitability as food packaging material.
