|Abstract(s):||Bioactive compounds are a large group of compounds (antimicrobials, antioxidants, nutrients, etc.), but its use in edible ﬁ lms and coatings for application on fruits and vegetables has been very important because nowadays the consumers demand fruits and vegetables that are fresh, healthy, high quality and easy to prepare. A number of investigations have shown that the use of additives in edible ﬁ lms and coatings improve its functionability and provide compounds for human health. However, it is necessary to continue research that can generate speciﬁ c or tailor-made edible ﬁ lms and coatings for each product with the best characteristics for preservation. In this review we present and analyze the concepts, progress and perspectives in the design and application of edible ﬁ lms and coatings for fruits and vegetables in order to deﬁ ne the challenges and opportunities that this topic of study in the ﬁ eld of science, technology and food engineering.|
