Could mayonnaise soon contain tree pulp? Scientists think so

Could mayonnaise soon contain tree pulp? Scientists think so

Companies around the world are working to produce nanocellulose in commercial quantities, paving the way to a vast array of products based on materials derived from trees, as they attempt to end our dependence on petrochemicals.

"I think it will give us the opportunity to produce, for example, fat free mayonnaise based on forest products that we don't believe in today," said Mikael Hannus, head of research and innovation at Finnish pulp mill operator Stora Enso. "I think nanocellulose, microcellulose will end up in many, many different applications as an enhancement or experience improvement agent."
