Production and evaluation of edible film (albumin) with different concentrations of olive oil and oleic acid

Abstract: This study was conducted to investigate the effect of olive oil and oleic acid which was
incorporated into albumin (Egg white) through emulsification for producing films on
mechanical properties .Plasticizer was necessary to maintain film and coating integrity and
to avoid pores and cracks. .Edible composite films were prepared from albumin and lipid
materials (1% & 1.5%). The effect of unsaturated oleic acid with glycerol and
monounsaturated olive oil on tensile strength, elongation at break, WVP, (OP), solubility,
colour, opacity and Atomic force microscopy (AFM) was investigated. In general, the
incorporation of lipid materials resulted in the increase (P < 0.05) of tensile strength and
elongation at break, and the reduction of WVP with some exceptions. Overall effect of
monounsaturated was greater than that of unsaturated oleic acid. The surface microstructure
of the films was analyzed using atomic force microscopy (AFM).
