    Author(s): Yashaswini M and Iyer PR*

    The aim of this work was to produce chitosan based films which can be used as an effective packaging material. In order to produce a material like that chitosan was extracted from the crab shells by the process of demineralization, deproteinization and deacteylation and the obtained chitosan was made into a film with additives like Turmeric/ Clove/Ginger and gelatin. Plasticizer like glycerol was also added to obtain a transparent, stretchable, exquisite film which is a active packaging material and the film forming solution was used as a coating over the areca nut plates and cups to prevent the microbial spoilage and to increase the shelf life of them and then coating was also performed on fruits and vegetables to prevent spoilage and increase their shelf life. The film was checked for its thickness, transparency and stability. The physical, chemical and biologic.. Read More»
