(2008)Biobased films are potential food packaging materials. However, their performance with respect to water and gas barrier properties is inferior to current packaging products on market. Drying oils are promising as film ...
(2000)Overall, plasticization of zein with oleic and linoleic acids resulted in thermoplastic and moldable resins potentially useful for manufacturing flexible packaging materials. Methods of plasticizer incorporation influenced ...
(1997)Plasticization was improved by dissolving zein and fatty acids in warm aqueous alcohol solutions. Resins were obtained through precipitation and kneading treatments. Inclusion of palmitic and stearic acid in the formulation ...
(2000)This research focused on developing a process for the production of low cost zein from corn using a combination of solvent extraction and membrane technology. Extraction of zein from dry milled whole corn was optimum with ...
