The trend in the food packaging industry evolves towards innovative packaging materials as biosensors, which record the status of the product and can warn the consumer. The logic behind the colorimetric pH biosensor is that they provide the essential information about food visually by detecting change in pH. Anthocyanins are natural color pigments susceptible to pH change. Purple basil is rich in anthocyanins. In this study, ultrasound-assisted extraction was used for the extraction of dry purple basil. The processing conditions were optimized by response surface methodology (RSM) in terms of the total monomeric anthocyanin content and the increase in green intensity with pH. Electrospinning is a nanofiber fabrication operation used to encapsulate sensitive bioactive compounds for the production of intelligent sensing system. Polycaprolactone (PCL) films incorporating different purple basil extract (PBE) concentrations were fabricated by electrospinning procedure for the usage of colorimetric pH-indicator films as intelligent packaging. The most beadles and uniform nanofibrous mats were obtained when the spinning conditions were V=20 kV and Q=0.4 mL h-1for 10% (w v-1) PCLsolutions containing 0.4% and 0.6% (w v-1) PBE. The average fiber diameters in these films were 178.59±52.92 nm and 235.39±92.46 nm, respectively. The films gave promising results with regards to their use as colorimetric pH-indicator films. The time required to observe a visible color change (ΔE) in these films was only 4-5 s. The ΔE values between all successive pH’s were higher than 2, which is detectable by an inexperienced observer.
