Edible film can be consumed with the product

Water soluble films manufacturer MonoSol has introduced Vivos Edible Delivery Systems. Pouches made from Vivos films disappear and release their contents when exposed to hot or cold liquids; the dissolved film can then be consumed with the food, the company states.

Consumers benefit from on-the-go convenience, in addition to portion control and sustainability in terms of not having to throw away the package. Foodservice kitchens and food manufacturers using pre-measured quantities in mixing and batching operations improve the accuracy of the operation while also saving production time and processing costs. Examples include fruit drinks, workout supplements, instant teas and coffees, gravies, soups, hot chocolate, pasta, cooking aids, dyes, enzymes, vitamin fortifiers and yeasts.

The patent pending Vivos water soluble edible film formulation is composed of a proprietary blend of food grade ingredients. The film is transparent and said to have no smell or taste when consumed. It offers good oxygen barrier properties and has “robust mechanical properties that enable real-world usage with various foods and forming of bags/pouches using existing converting technologies”.
