Latest Update: August 23, 2016 | 353 Views

US scientists have introduced an edible milk-based packaging to reduce food spoilage and plastic waste.


The packaging developed by US Department of Agriculture has much smaller pores than existing packaging options and it is five hundred times better than plastics at locking out oxygen.

It will reduce waste by increasing the shelf life of food and will biodegrade quickly when thrown out.
