Edible food packaging made from milk proteins (w/video)

Plastic food packaging not only creates a lot of non-recyclable, non-biodegradable waste, but thin plastic films are not great at preventing spoilage. And some plastics are suspected of leaching potentially harmful compounds into food. To address these issues, scientists are now developing a packaging film made of milk proteins - and it is even edible.
