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.
