Bioluminescence Frozen Treats

Glow in the Dark Ice Cream is Created Using a Jellyfish Protein

— November 5, 2013 — Lifestyle
There is something a bit fishy about the Glow in the Dark Ice Cream and it has everything to do with the fact that it can glow in the dark. Yet it is in the how and not the why that makes it so fishy. Ice cream has been essentially injected with a synthetic version of the luminescence protein from jellyfish, which was created by a scientist from China.

Conceived and concocted by Charlie Francis of the Lick Me, I'm Delicious, the Glow in the Dark Ice Cream was commissioned for a special Halloween celebration. Considering how unique and creative this frozen treat is, it should come as no surprise that the price tag is pretty expensive. At around £140 ($225), it better be good.
Trend Themes
1. Bioluminescent Food - The use of bioluminescence in food products, particularly frozen treats, as a whimsical and unique selling point.
2. Synthetic Food - The production of artificial flavors and textures in food using man-made compounds for both novelty and practical applications.
3. Science-inspired Food - The creation of culinary experiences that draw inspiration from scientific concepts and processes, incorporating lab techniques and unusual ingredients.
Industry Implications
1. Food and Beverage - The food and beverage industry can explore incorporating bioluminescence and synthetic compounds to create new and unique products that attract consumers seeking novel experiences.
2. Entertainment and Events - Companies that specialize in event planning and entertainment can leverage innovative and eye-catching food and beverage concepts, such as bioluminescent frozen treats, to create truly memorable experiences that stand out from the competition.
3. Scientific Research and Biotechnology - The use of bioluminescence and synthetic compounds can be further explored in the scientific research and biotechnology sectors, particularly in the fields of food science and biomaterials, in order to develop new applications and products.
