Controlled release packaging (CRP) is an emerging technology by which active compounds such as antimicrobials or antioxidants are first incorporated into the package and then released to the food in a controlled manner to inhibit microbial growth, lipid oxidation, or other food deteriorations, thereby extending the shelf life of the food product. This chapter introduces the CRP technology, provides scientific evidence to support its technical soundness, and suggests a conceptual framework for its further development.
