EP 22: Frank Yiannas on Netflix’s Poisoned, Bio-Derived Polymers in Packaging

Learn from the brightest minds in food science in the October episodes of the Omnivore podcast.

In this episode, Omnivore talks with one of the experts interviewed for the documentary, FDA’s former Deputy Commissioner for Food Policy and Response Frank Yiannas, about what he thought of the final documentary and what he wishes had made the final cut. Also in this episode, packaging expert Claire Koelsch Sand discusses advances in the use of bioderived polymers in food and beverage packaging.
