Jellyfish chips is the new junk food on the block

Jellyfish might not be featured in your ideal seafood menu but apparently, they could be the future of junk food.

A delicacy in Asia, Jellyfish might soon end up in plates across the globe thanks to a new research team which has found a way to make Jellyfish chips. The large availability of jellyfish is one of the reasons why researchers are leaning towards the option of Jellyfish as a food.

Apart from Jellyfish chips, there are also talks about pickled jellyfish.

“Tasting jellyfish myself, I wanted to understand the transformation from a soft gel to this crunchy thing you eat. Using ethanol, we have created jellyfish chips that have a crispy texture and could be of potential gastronomic interest.” One of the researchers noted.
