Summary: The effect of nano-emulsified mustard (Brassica juncea) essential oil (NME) alone and combined with gelatin/hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (FNME) investigated in comparison with a synthetic packaging polymer on weight loss, pH, total volatiles, total volatile basic nitrogen value (TN), thiobarbituric acid reactive substances value (TR), microbiological and sensorial cha­racteristics of turkey breast during 20 days storage at 4 ± 1 °C. Results showed that pH, TN, TR, yeasts, moulds, total mesophilic and psychrotrophic bacteria of FNME samples were significantly lower than the same parameters of other samples during storage time (p < 0.05). The use of FNME significantly improved sensory attributes especially the odour and overall acceptability in comparison with NME (p < 0.05). In FNME samples, the shelf life of turkey meat was prolonged to 10–15 days. FNME coating was effective at improvement of the overall quality and extended the shelf life of turkey meat during cold storage.
