Promyde® antioxidant and antimicrobial properties in polymers
Promyde® introduces this innovation that will extend the shelf life of packed food. Our Active Packaging Technology consists of incorporating encapsulated active principles in to the polymer matrix in order to provide antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.
The active principles are released outside the capsules by a controlled diffusion method (pressure difference inside/outside the capsule); while gas-phase radicals permeate through the layer containing capsules, and are stabilized by the active principles.
The antioxidant and antimicrobial active principles are based on natural essential oils. These principles are active at vapour phase thus direct contact with food is not required, being the perfect solution for MAP food trays.
Our Active Packaging Technology can also be applied to any other polymer bases.
