Did You Know That We Can Now EAT Water? Ooho! ;)

The Edible Plastic Bottle

This edible ‘bottle’ could change the way we drink water

We drink water and sometime we slurped, guzzled, or sipped it.

But, have you tried eating water? No, I’m not kidding. You can now eat water.

It’s possible with “Ooho,” an edible bottle produced by Skipping Rocks Lab.

Mike Wehner explained, “Ooho spheres are created by dipping frozen balls of liquid into an algae mixture that forms a membrane around the ice. The ice melts into liquid water and membrane, which is edible and biodegradable, forms a watertight seal around it. To consume the liquid you can either bite into the tasteless membrane and sip it out or just eat the entire ball, membrane and all.”

Amazing, right? But, what makes it a viral sensation is that “Ooho” is a no-plastic-needed concept. It could an alternative to plastic bottles. Of course, this might be another solution to stop the global health crisis that is plastic pollution.

Watch if this edible water can become the universal key to water and drinks on-the-go.
