Ethylene vinyl alcohol films containing two natural flavonoids have been used as antioxidant active materials for food packaging. The results show that it is possible to reduce food oxidation without adding antioxidants to the food by actively reducing the presence of radical oxidative species even though the antioxidants are not released into the food. The films obtained can be used to protect any type of food, including dry or fatty products.
