There is growing interest towards the functional properties and health benefits of both probiotics and paraprobiotics. In this investigation, probiotic bacterial cells (viable and non-viable Lactiplantibacillus plantarum IS-10506) were incorporated into alginate-(Alg) based edible films. Confocal laser scanning microscopy was used to confirm the presence of probiotic bacteria in the Alg matrix. The addition of probiotic cells (1 × 109 cells/mL) was found to improve the performance of Alg film such as light transmission by 67.04% and antifungal activity against Botrytis cinerea by 49.54%. Although the addition of paraprobiotic cells can improve Alg film performance, particularly in terms of the water barrier property, which was confirmed with a series of assays (water vapour permeability (0.24 g.m/m2.h.Pa.109), hydrophobicity (67.08°) and atomic force microscopy (Ra = 5.94 nm, RMS = 7.22 nm)). Alg offered a compatible matrix for edible film containing probiotic bacteria. Alg-L film may have potential applications for protecting food products from light, and fungal decay, and Alg-D was suitable for the prevention of water loss from food.
