Will customers be open to eating packaging for prepared and processed foods?
“The U.S. Department of Agriculture has discovered how to develop a biodegradable, edible packaging film made from the milk protein, casein, Bloomberg reported. Researchers are eyeing the casein-based film, which is more airtight that plastic, as a potential replacement for the wrappers for packaged cheese, single-serving cheese sticks, soups, coffee and other food products packed in thin, difficult-to-recycle plastic wrap. The technology is more promising than, for instance, potato starch-based packing peanuts.“
