Göttingen University researchers develop bio-based “granulated” popcorn for packaging

August 26, 2021 |

In Germany, researchers at Göttingen University have now succeeded in developing a novel process, based on its many years of experience in the field of renewable raw materials. The results are that three-dimensional molded forms can be produced from “granulated” popcorn. The great advantage of this granular material is that it comes from renewable biological sources, is environmentally friendly and sustainable. It is therefore an excellent alternative to the polystyrene products used previously. In addition, the new popcorn products have water-repellent properties, which opens up new avenues for future applications.
