|Abstract: ||The project ‘Preparation of active packaging with antioxidant and antimicrobial
activity based on astaxanthin and chitosan’ (PAPAAABAC, in Spanish PEACAABAQ)
brings together a multi-disciplinary team from Mexico, Spain and Portugal,
with expertise in different areas of food and polymer sciences. The working programme
includes optimisation of the extraction and characterisation of astaxanthin
and chitosan from shrimp waste, and incorporation of these compounds into plastic
(polymeric matrices), in order to obtain new packaging with antioxidant and
antimicrobial properties (active packaging) and finally control-release studies which
are carried out in order to determine the quantity of active compounds that should
be included in the packaging. This is a 2-year project which started in 2009 and is
funded by FONCYCIT (Fund for International Cooperation of Science and Technology
EU-Mexico; Fondo de Cooperación Internacional de Ciencia y Tecnologia
Unión Europea-Mexico) under the coordination of Professor Jaime López Cervantes
from the Technological Institute of Sonora (ITSON).|
