From a Biz Review article about a biotech food company planning to potentially set up on UAlbany's east campus: "Fruitura's business plan calls for extracting the cells of fruit and vegetables that contain nutrients, replicating those cells, rendering them as a dry powder and mixing them into chewing gum, yogurt, cosmetics, or as a healthy 'booster shot' in a drink of water or juice." The company says it plans to start with red grapes. (Maybe for the resveratrol? By the way You know what's the for-sure health benefit of apples and grapes and other fruits and vegetables? They're not french fries.) [Biz Review]
