Demonstration for selective deodorant / 納豆をいい香りにするデモ

We demonstrated the selective deodorant shown in AIST open laboratory in 2017. From the beans with bad odor by excessive fermentation, our deodorant only remove the bad odor with keeping the good smell.

2017年の一般公開で紹介したアンモニア吸着材のデモです。発酵が進んで、嫌な臭いが出始めた納豆から嫌な臭いだけを取り、豆の良いにおいは残します。共同開発先募集中!
