Mori Silk Protein Designated Non-Novel Food in Canada

A product called Mori Silk has received non-novel food status from Health Canada based on its centuries-old safe history of use as a food. The product resembles natural silk and is a protein that can be used to create an edible and non-detectable protective layer over food surfaces. It can be used on both fresh and shelf stable foods. This product should be helpful in reducing single use plastics and supporting global access to safe and nutritious foods.
