Starch-based plastic alternatives are nothing new and have a fundamental disadvantage compared to conventional plastics: their sensitivity to water, especially boiling water.

Broths are basically starch-based. Just as a fruit protects its inner self, this packaging is made of starch. It dissolves in hot water during the preparation process, but otherwise behaves like a standard thermoplastic. The food labelling was lasered, similar to the latest declaration options for organic vegetables in supermarkets.

The packaging consists of two layers. The outer, simple starch layer and the inner, based on a broth. It can be washed, boiled in hot water and finally eaten as a whole.
