Edible Spoons

  • Why Edible Cutlery..?
    • This innovation of edible cutlery was drawn from the following concerns:
      1. Depletion of groundwater can be arrested by creating markets for less irrigation demanding crops such as jowar (sorghum). The edible cutlery is made from flours of this crop.
    • 2. Demand for power from the agriculture sector does not commensurate its contribution to the GDP and on the contrary is creating pressures on other sectors, notably on the manufacturing sector. This is largely because of the faulty crop choices. This initiative could help in triggering the right crop mix (even districts with scanty rainfall are registering increasing trends in water guzzling rice crop).
    • 3. The demand for plastic cutlery is increasing over the days. Plastic, a petroleum by-product is more harmful to human body because of the presence of several toxins and carcinogens. Its application as food consumption utensil enhances the chances of these chemicals to get into the human system.
  • What Edible Cutlery..?
    • 1. Our Edible Cutlery/cholamspoons is meant to be eaten after use. If you do not want to eat, simply throw it away. Insects and stray animals will eat them up or they will degrade naturally in less than three days.

      * These are made of flours. The flours are kneaded with plain water – no additional chemicals and not even preservatives. They are 100% natural and made under strict hygienic conditions. We have tried making them with various flours and closed on Jowar (so`rghum).
    • Why sorghum? We are making our products with sorghum, because, this crop requires hardly any irrigation. Therefore the raw material production will not cause pressures on groundwater. Sorghum is also highly nutritive.

      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

      Energy used to produce

      Petroleum is used to produce plastic

      It is manufactured using flour of food grains.

    • Workers hygiene – The workers are free of skin and contagious diseases.
    • Work place hygiene – The workers are given aprons, gloves, face masks and head caps. The manufacturing unit are fully enclosed from all sides to avoid dust, insects and pollution as per norms.
    • Usage Instructions- Handle carefully, do not poke cutlery with force in food. Open the packet only when you are ready to consume most of the spoons or store in tight lid containers as they can become less crispy if exposed to moisture in atmosphere. Do not refrigerate.
