Abstract: Highly porous modified calcium carbonate (MCC) powder has been successfully integrated into packaging material as a coating and the coated packaging films were loaded with 5, 10 or 30 wt % thyme and rosemary essential oil (EO). Resulting MCC labels were applied as labels and showed antimicrobial activities against L. innocua in in vitro test. After 6 days MCC labels with 10 and 30 wt % thyme EO showed significant reductions in in vitro tests (2.9 and > 8.5 log CFU/filter). When MCC labels with rosemary EO were used, only 30 wt % loading showed a significant reduction (1.6 log CFU/filter). Subsequently, the antimicrobial activity of MCC labels with 30 wt % EOs against L. innocua on ready to eat meat product were studied under normal atmosphere and modified atmosphere (MA). Use of MCC labels with 30 wt % thyme EO loading combined with MA packaging showed a significant microbial reduction of 1.2 log CFU/g on cooked ham after 21 days (compared to untreated MCC labels packaged under MA). On the other hand, use of MCC labels loaded with 30 wt % rosemary EO (with MA) showed significant reductions of L. innocua on sliced cooked chicken breast (2.6 log CFU/g) as well as cooked ham (1.3 log CFU/g).
