[China Packaging News] making food packaging (especially those non degradable plastics) into edible materials seems to be a new focus of the packaging industry. Now someone wants to be a substitute for plastic film. Several scientists from the Research Institute of the US Department of agriculture (US high-end metal new material characteristics industry cluster DA) have made a kind of film paper from casein in milk for food packaging. Compared with traditional plastic paper and fresh-keeping film, it can be naturally biodegradable. It is said that its another advantage is that it is 500 times stronger than ordinary plastic fresh-keeping film in terms of freshness preservation and oxidation resistance
cooperation is the last word! According to Laetitia bonnaillie, a chemical engineer who is in charge of the project, this kind of casein film paper looks very similar to plastic, but its ductility and elasticity are not as good as some plastics
"the accurate method in the market should find out that there are some starch edible packaging paper in the displacement spectral density curve, but there are more small holes in the composition of starch packaging paper, which will allow air to penetrate. Casein packaging paper has smaller pores, which can better isolate air and keep fresh
you may be worried about the cost. Laetitia said that they use the remaining milk powder reserves in the United States to make films, so the cost is not high. Casein is tasteless. In the future, they plan to launch flavored casein wrapping paper
at present, a company in Texas has begun to try this kind of casein film for food packaging. This kind of film may start mass production within 3 years and officially come out
a kind of Edible CUPCAKE paper
Shilpa rosenberry, senior director of global consumption strategy of Daymon worldwide, a food industry consulting company, said: "edible packaging represents a global consumer's thinking and realm, especially in terms of environmental awareness of sustainable development and simplifying life."
