Bioplastics Packaging for Energy Gel

New bioplastic packaging for energy gel.

There’s a new bioplastic packaging for energy gel, a nutritional supplement often used during endurance sports like running or cycling.

The bioplastics is made from a combination of tapioca and potato that is first broken down by acid – in this case, lemon juice and white vinegar – and is then bound back by vegetable glycerin and agar, a type of gelatin derived from seaweed.

Rainfall and local critters can break it down in a few days. The material has no impact on pH levels water.
