The cinnamon essential oil micro-capsules was prepared by β-Cyclodextrin (β-CD) embedding technology, the commercially available fruit wax was used as substrate and cinnamon oil micro-capsule was added as antibacterial agent. The concentration of fruit wax, micro-capsules addition, dissolution temperature, stirring speed and other factors on the fresh-keeping effect of antibacterial fruit wax were studied through L9(34) orthogonal experiments. The results of orthogonal experiments showed that the antibacterial fruit wax had a significant antibacterial effect on Penicillium and Staphylococcus aureus. The optimum preparation technology was determined as follows: the concentration of fruit wax was 50 % (relative to the total volume of fruit wax solution), the content of cinnamon oil micro-capsules was 40 mg/mL, the dissolution temperature was 70 ?"?, the stirring speed was 700 r/min, a good antibacterial effect of fruit wax solution can be obtained. The inhibition zone diameter on Penicillium and Staphylococcus aureus was 28 mm and 20 mm. The fresh-keeping effect of the cherry tomato was tested, the results showed that all the indexes of the cherry tomato coated with the anti-bacterial fruit wax were better than the control group, the weight loss rate and respiration intensity were significantly reduced, and its shelf life was significantly extended.
