Characterization of Edible Film Made of Pectin from Nutmeg and Palmitic Acid

Abstract

The development of biopolymers as a packaging material is increasingly needed to reduce environmental pollution due to the use of synthetic plastics which are biologically difficult to break down. Nutmeg contains pectin which can be used as a base for making edible films. The aim of the study was to determine the characterization of the edible film from the pectin of nutmeg with the addition of palmitic acid and glycerol as a plasticizer. The results showed that the increase in the concentration of pectin and palmitic acid tended to significantly increase the thickness of the edible film, the elongation rate and the tensile strength of the film, but it could decrease the water vapor transmission rate and the film solubility. The best treatment was a concentration of 30% wet pectin (w / v) and palmitic acid 0.04% (w / w) which resulted in the lowest water vapor transmission rate of 2.39 (g / mm / m2 hour).
