Breakthrough: Bottle Ingredients
The Triple E Edible water bottle will use sodium alginate. It comes from seaweed. The next ingredient is calcium lactate. When these materials come together they form a sphere. The breakthough will be to add an edible glue into the mixture. The mixture will need to be able to be printed from a 3D printer. It must also hold water.
1. Sodium Alginate - Is taken from brown seaweed, and has a clear, transparent property. When mixed with water it thickens and binds.
3. Sodium Alginate & Calcium Lactate - When they are mixed together they make large spheres that can hold a liquid inside.
2. Calcium Lactate - Is a calcium salt that is used with many mixtures. It is white and does not have a taste or smell.
4. Tylose or New Edible Glue - This would be used to form our edible water bottle together. It will be able to hold a liquid and be used in a 3D printer.
