New F-100 edible-ingredient film has been designed to package food ingredients in pouches, offering bakers and other processors a means of using premeasured quantities and helping them save on processing costs, claims the co. The film is also water-soluble and can reduce the risk of packaging materials contaminating food products. The film has been engineered specifically for the unit-dose packaging of flavors, colorants, dyes, enzymes, vitamin fortifiers, conditioners, yeasts and other types of dry ingredients. F-100 is made from edible, cellulose polymers and dissolves completely in cold water. The film can be converted into bags or wrappers on most conventional packaging machines.
