From peels to casein
Food waste comprises things that we produce almost every day, even without noticing it. Its production ranges from huge industrial scales to small domestic scales (i.e. households). A large amount of food produced globally is never being consumed. At the global level, large amounts of milk go to waste even before it reaches the store. Not only does this result in economic loss, it also has an adverse impact on planet Earth. There are numerous possibilities and ways to use wasted food as a raw material for various products, instead of just throwing it away. In light of the above, the aim of this project is to suggest an alternative material which is completely non-toxic and made out of food waste. Furthermore, increasing the awareness of wastage as well as providing an opportunity to show the appreciation towards food. In addition, because I am living in Switzerland right now, which is a country known for its dairy products, I am especially focusing on milk and plant based food wastes.
