Dissolves in a matter of hours in water and all that remains is a natural corn protein. Eliminates the costly and lengthy recycling process and results in zero landfill bulk.
ASHBURNHAM, MA, October 14, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Lore Technology, LLC of Dallas announces the introduction of an indisputably dissolvable beverage cup. The company has teamed up with FloZein Products a division of Flo Chemical Corp, a Massachusetts based manufacturer of Zein. The company’s FloZein is a proprietary non-GMO corn derived protein which, when solubilized, creates edible coatings and encapsulation products for the food, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical & packaging industries.
Lore Technology’s dissolvable cups are made of a non-toxic, biodegradable and water-soluble substrate. The substrate is then coated with a thin layer of a water insoluble, FDA approved, moisture barrier: FloZein(tm). The cups surface can be colored or dyed with a water-soluble pigment for differentiation and branding purposes. The cup may be dissolves in just a matter of hours by placing it in a heated water bath. The water effectively dissolves the cup through the uncoated bottom and subsequent wicking up the sides. As the soluble substrate and pigment dissolve, what’s left over is FloZein(tm), an all-natural, edible corn protein. For almost 60 years Zein has been approved by the FDA as safe for human and animal consumption, in effect, the degraded cup becomes a natural plant fertilizer. Consumers can enjoy beverages without the guilt of negatively impacting the environment.
Lore Technology seeks to license the dissolvable cup for further development and commercialization. To learn more about licensing or commercialization opportunities please contact Terry Guido at 469-348-8563 or by email at [email protected], or visit the website at www.loretechnologyllc.com.
