No, the title of this blog post is not a typo. What’s the main difference between how we package food and how nature does it? We encase our foods in wax-coated cardboard, layers of plastics, and other materials. Some of those come from harvesting from nature, and some come from pulling oil from deep in the earth. Nature, on the other hand, encases its fruits and nuts in edible or biodegradable coverings. A company called WikiCell Designs is taking that idea from nature and creating edible packaging for liquids, mousses, and emulsions such as ice cream, juices, cheese, and yogurt.
