Tensile strength (TS), elongation (E), water vapor permeabilities (WVP) and solubilities were determined for highly carboxymethylated starch (HCMS)-based edible films plasticized with sorbitol (S), xylitol (X), mannitol (M) and glycerol (G). TS and E of HCMS-based film increased as the concentration of plasticizer S, M or X increased. TS of the HCMS-based film containing combined plasticizers were higher than those of films containing single plasticizer. The WVP of HCMS-based films seemed to decreased as the concentration of M, X or G plasticizer increased. Increasing plasticizer concentrations in HCMS-based film resulted in decreasing solubility of the films.
