This Is How You Can Make Your Own Edible Water Bottle At Home


Ooho is an innovative edible water “bottle” designed by three Londoners making all the headlines. With a catchy tagline, “Water you can eat,” it is a consumable spherical packaging of water created out of seaweed. But what if you want to create one for yourself? Today, we are going to tell you how!

In the words of The Telegraph, “Drunk your water? Now eat the bottle it came in.”
This edible blob creation is quite innovative as it helps in finding a solution for the ever increasing plastic waste problem. While you can always buy Ohoo from the company’s website, we are going to reveal a very simple process, spherification, which you can use to create your personal gelatin based edible water “bottle.”

To create a homemade Ooho,  use sodium alginate and calcium chloride to go by the formula of the designers. You can also replace the calcium chloride with calcium lactate, which will result in a less tough but equally fascinating membrane.

So, what are you waiting for? Create your personalized Ooho at home now and let us know how your blobs turn out!
