Abstract

Edible films incorporate with various ratio of Kumquat peel extract were prepared by using solvent casting techniques. In order to determine the effect of Kumquat peel concentration, the biofilms have been characterized by physical properties such as moisture content, swelling degree, water solubility, water vapor permeability, color and transparency as their structures were confirmed by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). In addition, the mechanical properties have been determined with the tensile strength and elongation in terms of breakage of the prepared films.
