I actually wanted to call this panda-floss.
  [vote for,

A buddy of mine in Malaysia just said that he's having chicken floss (as a food, not as a disease or anything). I think there was a linguistic error involved, but this set me thinking.

Candy-floss tastes especially sugary and wonderful because the fine fibres present an enormous surface area to the mouth and dissolve rapidly.

A higher-speed centrupugal device would be needed to floss meat, fish, cheese, etc, but once perfected, the possibilities would be unlimitless.

so indeed this is baked and your friend did not make a typo! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rousong

       what [blissy] said!
But...maybe cheese would be nice, so I'll think about it and come back when I'm hungrier!

       I can only say that I am saddened by this bifid "ugh". Can you not imagine the savoury goodness of beefy-floss? The "wall of taste" effect of anchovy-floss?   

       Given that I am invariably late for everything, this discovery that I was born ahead of my time comes as something of a shock.

       The concept of cheese floss is disturbingly attractive.

       Wait til you try "bacon-floss". Unflossed foods will, soon, be seen as mere raw materials.

       We are concerned that Crispy Cheese, Bacon and Toast Floss may represent a potentially lethal sensory overload to the consumer.

       [neutral] I could imagine a machine of this sort being used to create mozzarella cheese... but as a processing step for making solid cheese, not for cheese fluff.   

       Incidentally, which direction is centrupugal, inwards or outwards?
goldbb, Feb 09 2010

       Sideways actually.
South East of here in the Bikaner district of Rajasthan, India.

       Ancient mexican indigenous cultures used to clean their teeth with tortilla ashes. It worked nicely, they said, but since I first heard of that I found the idea of a "tasty" teethcleaner plain disgusting.

       The original image begs the question: With hens' teeth being so scarce, what need would they have for floss?

       I'm thinking haggis floss...

Ideally, there will be a gadget you can buy for your home which will 'floss' anything, in the same way that the SodaStream could convert anything to a fizzy drink. Just chuck in your toast, marmalade and cup of tea and seconds later you'll have a delicious breakfast floss, for example.

       Hippo - have our tech guys been talking loose again? We are indeed developing a home-flossing machine. At the moment, our industrial flossers run about 12kW and 3 tons, but we are looking to improve this.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 10 2010

       Hmmm - re the link, it doesn't quite look like what I had in mind. I am thinking of a far more intensive engineering process, leading to centripugally-extruded fibres of goodness which can be wound on a stick.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 10 2010

       I would like the cheese floss wound around a pretzel rod please...
xandram, Feb 10 2010

       // haggis floss //   

       Well done, [hippo]. That's another one good for a few sessions of waking up in the night, screaming...
