Özet

BACKGROUNDThe interior quality, shell impact strength and functional characteristics of eggs coated with chitosan and lysozyme-chitosan combinations were evaluated for enhancing egg freshness during storage. A 10% (w/w) lysozyme solution was incorporated into 1% (w/w) chitosan film-forming solution at ratios of 0, 10, 20 and 60% (w/w).
