This book addresses, through up-to-date research, the applications and development of the packaging materials that originate from biological resources. It discusses the advances made in bioactive, biodegradable, edible films, and nano-based smart materials for food packaging applications that can be a substitute for their synthetic counterparts to enhance the food’s shelf life significantly. It not only encompasses a comprehensive overview of environment-compatible and biodegradable biomaterials but also highlights the recent trends in their applications in food packaging. The book is a valuable reference for researchers, undergraduate and postgraduate students, academicians, educators, and industry scientists seeking bio-based materials for food packaging applications.
