This review aims to address the current data on edible packaging systems used in food production. The growing global population, changes in the climate and dietary patterns, and the increasing need for environmental protection, have created an increasing demand for waste-free food production. The need for durable and sustainable packaging materials has become significant in order to avoid food waste and environmental pollution. Edible packaging has emerged as a promising solution to extend the shelf life of food products and reduce dependence on petroleum-based resources. This review analyzes the history, production methods, barrier properties, types, and additives of edible packaging systems. The review highlights the advantages and importance of edible packaging materials and describes how they can improve sustainability measures. The market value of edible packaging materials is expanding. Further research on and developments in edible food packaging materials are needed to increase sustainable, eco-friendly packaging practices that are significant for environmental protection and food safety.

This review compiles different analytical methods reported by the researchers studying heavy metal contents in seaweed samples from a variety of natural and commercial sources. Heavy metals in seaweed affect environmental health and human health due to seaweed’s role in the aquatic food chain and human consumption. The potential for heavy metal presence in seaweed is due to industrial pollution and other human activities. There is an ongoing demand for evaluation of the presence of nutritional as well as hazardous metals in raw and processed seaweeds. This review article will look at the importance and usage of seaweed, the importance of measuring heavy metals in seaweed, seaweed’s ability to absorb heavy metals, the health risks of consuming seaweed, and reported atomic spectroscopy-based heavy metal analysis methods in research on seaweed.
