Purpose Artichoke is an important vegetable of Mediterranean cuisine, however only 15-40% of globe artichoke weight consists of the edible parts. The rest of the plant which is discarded as waste is composed of many valuable components for further utilization. In this study, the alkali extracts of outer petal (bract) of globe artichoke (APE) which was discarded as processing waste was used as a lignocellulosic fiber source at different concentration in potato starch-based biodegradable composite food packaging films.
