MERRILLVILLE, IN | MonoSol,, supplier of specialty water-soluble, polymer-based films, introduces Vivos Edible Delivery Systems. Pouches engineered from Vivos films disappear and release their contents when exposed to hot or cold liquids; the dissolved film can then be consumed along with the food.
Company says 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.
The patent-pending film formulation is composed of a proprietary blend of food-grade ingredients. Reportedly, the film is transparent and has no smell or taste when consumed; 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.
