Abstract:To potentially address food waste and reduce the environmental issues resulting from plastic materials, the main goal of this project is to add anthocyanins extracted from red cabbage to the optimal pectin/sodium alginate/cellulose nanocrystals film to make intelligent indicators that can monitor and inform the quality of food products. The extraction approaches were optimized, and the physical properties, mechanical properties, and optical properties of the obtained films were characterized. In addition, the resulting anthocyanin-rich films were applied to real food tests for monitoring the freshness of the shrimp.
