The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of chitosan (CS) nanocomposite films incorporated with quercetin (3 wt. %) as crosslinking agent on quality and shelf life of paneer stored at 4 ± 1°C. The microbiological, physicochemical (pH, Thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances values, Tyrosine values) and sensory qualities were measured on all the samples. Packaging with CS-quercetin nanocomposite film retarded the increase in TBARS values, Tyrosine values and Total plate count. A microbiological shelf-life extension of average of 8 days for paneer was achieved for CS-quercetin group when compared to the control group. CS-quercetin nanocomposite composite film maintained acceptable sensory quality of paneer throughout the storage period. The results indicated that CS-quercetin nanocomposite composite film could be used as a packaging film for extending the shelf life of Paneer.
