USA Today 05/23/2022

A group of students at Johns Hopkins University have created Tastee Tape, a clear, edible adhesive meant to keep food items such as burritos and wraps from coming apart. The students are applying for a patent. “First, we learned about the science around tape and different adhesives, and then we worked to find edible counterparts,” said Tyler Guarino, a Johns Hopkins senior majoring in engineering, who participated in the project.
