What is it about?
The aim of this review is to offer a comprehensive view of recent state-of-the-art protein-based films as biodegradable materials applicable to food packaging with special reference to the application and combination of technological advances. Such advances include plasticization, cross-linking techniques, nanotechnology, and composite films.

Why is it important?
Biodegradable and/or edible films have the potential to reduce some traditional synthetic polymeric packaging materials for specific applications. In recent years, biodegradable films prepared with animal and vegetable proteins have received increasing attention and are increasingly being used in the food-packaging industry due to their relative abundance, film-formation capacity, biodegradability, and nutritional value.
