Fruit Beverage Production and Packaging Book
from C.H.I.P.S.

Intelligent and Active Packaging for Fruits and Vegetables
edited by Charles L. Wilson

Intelligent and Active Packaging for Fruits and Vegetables explores the new technology and applications used to bring fresh, safe, nutritious produce to the consumer.

It explains Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) and its use in packaging fruits and vegetables, as well as fish and meat. It includes variations and advances on MAP such as high vapor-permeable films, and demonstrates modeling techniques to assist in the prediction and selection of packaging type.

Intelligent and Active Packaging for Fruits and Vegetables also contains a chapter on the trends, opportunities, and challenges of RFID temperature monitoring in food packaging. Additionally, it considers the interaction between container and food product, as well as the use of non-toxic insect repellent plastics.

Features:

  • Offers an in-depth study of the latest packaging technologies to preserve the freshness of fruit and vegetable products
  • Explains the use of RFID temperature monitoring, Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC), and MAP atmospheric control
  • Covers the regulatory implications of nanotechnology in active and intelligent packaging
  • and more!
