Abstract

Laminated films were prepared by casting corn-zein and fatty acid mixed solutions onto ${\kappa}-carrageenan$ films, and the effect of various fatty acids with different concentrations on the film properties such as water vapor permeabilities (WVP), tensile strength (TS) and elongation was investigated. WVP of the film decreased as concentration of fatty acids increased, and the lowest WVP value $(0.497\;ng\;m/m^2\;s\;Pa)$ was achieved with laminated films containing 30% lauric acid/corn-zein. The TS of laminated edible film seemed to decrease as the concentration of fatty acids increased, and TS of the laminated film was the highest (36.21 MPa) when the film contained 10% oleic acid. Weight loss of the minced mackerels packaged with corn-zein/carrageenan film which did not contain fatty acid was 11.7%, but weight losses of the samples packaged with oleic acid and lauric acid were 6.97% and 0.81%, respectively, after 30 days storage at $-20^{\circ}C$. The laminated films had an effect on preventing oxidation of the minced mackerels during storage because of high oxygen barrier property of the film. All of the minced mackerels packaged with the laminated films greatly reduced the peroxide value (POV) compared with unpackaged minced mackerels during storage. Also, thiobarbituric acid (TBA) values of the minced mackerels packaged with the laminated films were lower than that of unpackaged minced mackerels during storage.
