FastCompany Magazine

The official Tumblr of Fast Company.

But WikiCells is no mere As Seen On TV™ gadget and Edwards says it’s no mere conceptual provocation either—the launch in Paris proves this. The technology already exists: Electrostatic charges can transform a sugar processing bi-product called bagasse, mixed with chitosan and alginate, into an edible shell membrane. Now any food you might find wrapped in plastic in the store can come in a shell made just using this technology. You’ll be able to peel the shell off and compost the skin like a banana peel or, take a step beyond biodegradable, eat the whole thing like you would chew a grape.
