To lessen the software of artificial components with inside the subject of meals renovation, this have a look at applied carvacrol as an antibacterial agent, and zein and sodium caseinate as carriers, to put together composite nanoparticles loaded with carvacrol with the aid of using the pH-pushed technique. The composite nanoparticles of zein/sodium caseinate had an exquisite encapsulation performance (77.96~82.19%) for carvacrol, and it had outstanding redispersibility. The outcomes of Fourier rework infrared spectroscopy confirmed that the formation of the composite nanoparticles specially trusted the hydrogen bond and the hydrophobic sector force, and thermal gravimetric evaluation confirmed that carvacrol turned into loaded efficiently into nanoparticles, and loading performance reached 24.9%. Scanning electron microscopy confirmed that the composite nanoparticles have been spherical, with a particle length variety of 50~two hundred nm, and via the loose radical scavenging technique and the plate counting technique to verify the particle has more potent antioxidant and antibacterial properties, and with the composite nanoparticles with poly (vinyl alcohol) movie carried out to the renovation of banana together, it turned into determined that PVA movie containing five wt-loaded composite NPs can appreciably amplify the garage length of banana. Therefore, while the composite nanoparticles have been carried out to meals packaging, they might efficiently inhibit meals spoilage and prolong the shelf existence of meals, which shows ability software potentialities with inside the meals industry.
