This paper explains and demonstrates the effects of beeswax on functional and structural properties of soy protein isolate films, containing different glycerol. The results showed that percentage elongation at break, water vapor permeability, and transparency of soy protein isolate films decreased when the beeswax content increased, but tensile strength and oxygen permeability increased. The higher the glycerol content, the higher the film water vapor permeability, oxygen permeability, and transparency. The results of differential scanning calorimetry and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy suggested that beeswax cross-linked with soy protein isolate molecules via connecting with glycerol, composed the film matrix.
