Nanotech researchers have developed
, quite by accident, the first all-natural metal organic framework (MOF) made from renewable sources. And it turns out, you can eat them too.
“They taste kind of bitter, like a Saltine cracker, starchy and bland”
Doesn't sound very promising as a snack food, but it is very interesting to those looking to use MOF to store gases
, say hydrogen, in a more renwable manner.
You can actually make these for yourself
, you just y-cyclodextrin, potassium benzoate, water, and, well, Everclear. Yum?
