Paper Title:
Environmental-Friendly Soy Protein Isolate/Poly(Vinyl Alcohol) Blend Films: Biodegradation Behaviors
  Abstract

The objective of this work was to investigate the color stability in air under photo-oxidative degradation influencing consumer acceptance and biodegradation behaviors in soil of soy protein isolate (SPI)/poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) blend packaging films during 30 days. The results showed that PVA could dilute the yellow color and make the SPI-based films less darkness in application and the transparency of SPI/PVA films at various stages of degradation was improved. Aerobic biodegradation of films in soil proved that the PVA compound interacting with protein imposed negative effects on biodegradation of blend films prolonging their decomposing time. The SPI/PVA blend films decomposed into small fragments of less complex molecules along with surface completely digested after 30 days.
