Edible Food Packaging from Casein

March 6, 2018 from the Agresearch Magazine and IFT:

Scientists from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service (USDA ARS) have created edible food wraps made of casein.
"The packaging looks like commercially available food wraps, and because it is made from casein proteins extracted from milk, no U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval would be required to bring it to market. ARS is currently pursuing options to commercialize the technology via licensing. Possible applications include pouches to hold powdered soup or instant coffee; there is also the potential to apply an edible film directly to products like candy and cheese sticks."
"ARS scientists are also working on coatings applied from a liquid that is sprayed or brushed onto food or into which food can be dipped. The spray-on application could be used to replace sugar coatings on dry cereals, to add protein, and to help keep the cereal crunchy when milk is added."
