Recipe Test #1 Process Points, Observations & Questions -

All four recipes where unrefrigerated and fan dried for ~ 8hrs.

What is the effect of flash heating on health of soil / microbes?

Is heat a binder; a wise source to congeal (bind) ingredients? Is fire always available?

Is the Nutri-Membrane susceptible to insects? Will birds eat the seeds?

Wise to set a regional recipe or adaptable standard that allows for local / available materials & preparation.

Idea: Re-Use fruit pulp or other recycled local materials from farms and restaurants (from the waste stream).

Is organic a standard that can be achieved world-wide? What are the potential compromises?

Gelatin was not used in this test. Should it (or an alternative) be tried in subsequent tests?

Goal is to source local, organic ingredients.

Can the binder be nutritional?

Is fish oil a possible binder?

Other sources of Sugar than honey? Sources of natural sugars?

The commercial kid snack - "fruit roll-up"- is a good analogy and a model for additional research. The membrane needs to harden - and be strong enough for storage, travel, barter, market day and education

Two key parameters are consistency vs. elasticity.

Final Product estimated to be 12' - 16' by 8" rolls up for travel to fields and market; shipment to other places.

Central to product research: heat vs. non-heat.
