Characterization of edible films with the potential usage in food packaging
Jančíková, Simona ; Vítová, Eva (referee) ; Veselá, Mária (advisor)
In the last years, the edible packaging has been gaining popularity due to the potential usage as the packaging for food instead of synthetic materials. The edible packaging can positively affect the packaged food by the active properties or due to its intelligent properties can monitor the changes in food. In theory, the legislation about the packaging of food and edible packaging was described. The substances for edible films preparation and additives, which can improve the properties of the edible films, were described too. In this part, the undesirable microorganisms occur in food and the chapters about active and intelligent properties of the edible films were summarized. The main aim of the thesis was the practical preparation of edible packaging/films made from furcellaran, gelatin hydrolysate with the addition of water dried or fresh rosemary extracts in concentrations 5 %, 10 %, and 20 %. In the experimental part, the physical analysis was done – textural parameters such as tensile strength and elongation at break, water content, and thickness. In the chemical analysis the total polyphenols content, determination of polyphenols by HPLC, antioxidant activity, optical properties and antimicrobial activity of the prepared edible films were done. There were found out, that the total polyphenols content and antioxidant activity were the highest in the 20%DR (TPC: 6,79 ± 0,06 mg gallic acid/g; DPPH: 87,84 ± 0,07 %). Also, the 20%DR and 20%FR changed color in different pH (3 and 12). The antimicrobial activity was negative. The thesis showed that the addition of natural extracts to edible films can increase the polyphenols content and they can also work as the UV protector.
Potential microbial hazards in actual cosmetology trends - bio, vegan, raw
Jančíková, Simona ; Skoumalová, Petra (referee) ; Němcová, Andrea (advisor)
Bio-, vegan- and raw-cosmetics are continually more popular type of cosmetic products caused by an absence of synthetic and preservative substances but at the same time there is an increased probability of microbial contamination. The main aim of this thesis is a practical findings of potential microbiological contamination using a challenge test and a determination of any active ingredients in the cosmetic preparations. The legislation of cosmetic preparations as well as the information about certificates, which are awarded for bio-, vegan- and raw-cosmetics has been processed in the theory. This section also discusses a composition of vegetable and essential oils, which are used as raw materials in cosmetics production to a great extent and have a positive effect on skin. This thesis also deals with a possible microbiological contamination, listing the most frequently occurred pathogenic microorganisms, which can have a negative influence on consumer health. Operating life of selected samples using the Schülke Koko test by inoculating selected representatives of bacteria, yeasts and molds (Candida glabrata, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Aspergillus niger) are being tested in the practical part. In addition a possible antimicrobial activity which may partially replace an effect of synthetic preservatives in the presence of essential oils is also being tested. Finally any biological active substances were analysed by the gas chromatography, in particular fatty acids contained in the creams.
