Edible Cutlery

 

We make our cutlery we use sorghum+rice+wheat flours with hot water added to it and bake it.

Presently we make it only 3 types of tastes-

Plain with the three flour mixes

Sweet by adding little sugar to the three flour mixes

Savoury by adding-rock salt, black pepper, carom seeds and cumin seed

There are no preservatives, chemicals, additives, colouring agents, raising agents, fat, trans fat, artificial chemical nutrition or animal ingredients, milk or milk products.

It is 100% Vegan, vegetarian and is purely  Halal. It is baked at high temperature to make it crisp, hard and moisture free.

It can be made totally gluten free and we plan to do it by removing wheat for customized orders coming our way but from Mid 2017 only. Sorghum is gluten free and very high on micro nutrients.
We plan to add other ingredients once the production capacity is enhanced.

Use / Advantages Of Usage Of Edible Cutlery As Against Plastic Cutlery
Plastic Cutlery Edible Cutlery
Cost Low Cost Low Cost
Convenience High High
Disposal Though easy causes harmful effects on environment Can be eaten after using it or can be left to decompose
Taste Leaves a bad taste when used to consume food Does not dominate the taste of the food being consumed
Health Not good for the health (causes cancer, damages nervous tissue and is hormone-disruptive) Good for health when consumed after finishing the food (contains fiber, iron, protein, calcium, etc., in proper proportions)
Effects on Environment When disposed, plastic is resistant to decomposition therefore takes long time to decompose Takes a lot lesser time to decompose and acts as a good fertilizer
