Unfolding potential

Art & Leisure

It’s quick to prepare and comes in various shapes and sizes: pasta.

A research university in New York is currently experimenting with ways of reducing packaging. Particularly for larger-sized varieties.

Its pasta is flat-packed and has grooves and patterns. Using a computer simulation the team analyzed how the different patterns and surfaces responded to being placed in boiling water.

This flat-pack pasta only takes on its shape while being cooked. An environmentally-friendly 3D pasta that looks good and reduces packaging and plastic. And makes transport and storage more efficient.

Tasty style.
