Cambridge Crops has developed an odorless, tasteless, invisible edible coating for produce, meat, seafood and ready to eat salads made from silk fibroin that makes it harder for oxygen to get in and moisture to get out, dramatically extending shelf-life.
The ultra-thin (c.30 microns) silk fibroin membranes effectively slow down the respiration rate of the produce, said CEO Adam Behrens.
