In brief, active packaging is, of course, packaging which, on top of the traditional passive barrier and information functions, is specifically designed to change the condition of the packed food to extend shelf-life, improve safety or enhance sensory properties.
HOW ABOUT THE ARTIBAL’S CONCEPT?
In ARTIBAL´s concept, the active material is included in the packaging as a coating in the inner part of the material, instead of being introduced in the structure of the polymer. It is based on the inclusion of the structure of the coating of the active natural components.
AND WHAT IS THE GOOD THING ABOUT THAT?
Since the coating is used only as a very thin layer, the amount of the material used is very small compared to other options. Also, it is active both in direct contact (as traditional materials) and in vapour-phase migration, thus reducing the risk of product alteration as well as chances for undesirable migration.
