What is Cornstarch PLA?

cornstarchLet’s talk about Cornstarch PLA! I know what you are thinking! Plastic is bad for the environment and you don’t really want to hear about it. Traditional plastic is made from petroleum products, and are getting less and less popular among the consumers. But technology has come a long way! PLA may sound like plastic but it’s actually a Bioplastic made of cornstarch. See, even plastic can be Eco-friendly! Very resistant, everything that is 100% made of PLA is totally biodegradable and compostable!

Once it is converted to a thermoplastic polyester known as PLA, cornstarch is strong just like regular plastic only it is completely compostable. Though, it can’t withstand high temperatures, PLA is a versatile material that can be used in a variety of ways. Indeed, Cornstarch Cutlery cannot withstand temperatures above 115°F – 65°C. It is therefore recommended to use with cold to medium temperature foods.
