    Plastic takes approximately 1,000 years to biodegrade, so taking into account just how much plastic is disposed of around the world every single day, the new Casein-based packaging could be an environmental savior the likes of which has never been seen before.

    According to the American Chemical Society, Casein coating can also be sprayed directly onto cereal to keep its crunchiness, negating the need to add sugar to it. There’s even suggestion that the Casein coating can be used for applications such as individual dry soup portions, rice, noodles and instant coffee. The idea is that the consumer would simply add hot water, dissolving the container and thereby eliminating packaging waste entirely.


    Im a little weirded out by this tbh

    Um...how do you wash off a dirty "container" without contaminating your food?

    I'll stick to more conventional methods, thank you :)

    I think the American Chemical Society should consult or coordinate with the American Cancer Society. It sounds so space age that I am suspicious. Sadly instead of embracing a new packaging, I am suspicious of flaws.

    It is really cool but seems to good to be true.

    Though the technology is still in its early stages, Bonnaillie said that, with the right industry partners, consumers could see packaging on the shelves in as little as a year. And while the cost of the material will almost certainly, at least at first, be higher than traditional plastic packaging, Bonnaillie hopes that both companies and consumers will see the benefit in packaging that is both more eco-friendly and potentially healthier.

    I hope the packages are marked with what is used as a liner or cover....
