Soluble/Edible Films

The soluble film are made of potato starch and soy lecithin and are gluten free. 

The edible film discs do not dissolve when in contact with oil or liquid ingredients with low water content. They can be used with a wide variety of ingredients like crèmes, praline, flavoured oils, honey, foie gras, prosciutto, Nutella, dried fruits and vegetables, cereals, fresh fruit and vegetables brushed with oil, fried fish, meat or seafood and many other ingredients with low water content. The edible film disks can be cut with regular scissors to obtain any desired shape and can be sealed by applying heat with a sealed

Obulato in sheet form (round and square), cups and cones and XXL size square sheets.

Current Applications

Industrial Based

Monofilm: MonoFilm’s possible applications are limited solely by ingenuity, as its unique formulation addresses an array of manufacturing needs. A polyvinyl alcohol film platform, MonoFilm is essential to products ranging from aerospace composites to prosthetic limbs. Strength, flexibility and excellent release characteristics make MonoFilm an ideal solution to distinct design challenges: Recyclable Vacuum Bagging Films, Recyclable Pressure Tape, and Composite Fabrication.

AquaFilm: The Disappearing Laundry Bag

Badgemaster: Dissolvable Embroidery Films

The dissolving rate and tendency can be adjusted according to requirement and thus packaging which requires sturdy/flexible
