Gluten based film

This is a scanning electron micrograph of a gluten based film incorporated with urea and montmorillonite (MMT). The gluten used for the preparation of the film was extracted from dried distillers' grains with solubles (DDGS) using an aqueous ethanol extraction method. The prepared film was studied for its release pattern of urea which finds application in agricultural and horticultural fields. MMT was incorporated on to the film with a view to slow down the release pattern of urea. This works is being undertaken by Parvathy Prabhakumari in the Department of Food Biosciences.
