Soybean protein isolate SPI was used in the investigation of the formation of edible protein films through an enzymatic cross-linking method with a purified microbial transglutaminase MTG produced from a new effective strain Streptomyces sp. WZFF.L-M1 preserved in our laboratory, followed by the addition of glycerol and suitable heating and drying treatments. Cheaper partially-purified skimmed soybean protein powder SSP and whey protein isolates WPI were used as the substitutes partially replacing the expensive SPI products, and purified β-lactoglobulin was taken as the positive control of WPI. As a result, the three alternatives could also form highly efficient edible films under the optimal operation conditions. The films made with SPI alternatives, about 50 µm thin, had homogenous network structures, without any holes by direct observation with the naked eye. The tests of the properties of these films showed that they had high water-keeping capacity and strong elasticity, that the ultimate tensile strength TS and the elongation at break Eb had been remarkably increased TS>5 MPa, Eb>50 %, and that the prevention rates against the permeability of water vapour and oxygen in the air were also upgraded more than 85 and 70 %, respectively.
