Nowadays, application of antimicrobial packaging is extended due to increasing infections and bacterial contaminations transferred by foodstuff. Among different NPs silver, copper and gold are the most implemented antibacterial NPs used in the field of food industry. Researchers have used Copper nanoparticles as antimicrobial agent due to its lower price, simple synthesizes and its nutraceutical properties rather than silver NPs in some cases. Since, application of NPs in different packaging may exert some effects on animal and human cells, legislative authorities determined some rules for measurement of NPs migration to food material. Therefore, numerous researchers measured migration of copper NPs to foodstuff using Atomic Adsorption ICPMS and etc. In the current study different aspects of application of Copper nanoparticles as antibacterial packaging namely migration, antibacterial properties and instrumentation have been discussed.
