World Centric's Bagasse Bowls are disposable, compostable and biodegradable, made from 100% bagasse; a sugarcane fiber remaining after extraction of juice from the sugarcane.
The plant fiber based products are now made from sugarcane (bagasse) and wheatstraw fiber. Sugarcane and wheatstraw are not only annually renewable resources, but can also be turned into products normally made from plastic or paper. Bagasse is the sugarcane fiber remaining after extraction of juice from sugarcane and the wheatstraw is the remaining plant material after the wheat grain and chaff have been extracted. These byproducts are used to make compostable tableware.
The compostable bowls are
•microwave and freezer safe, can be used for both hot and cold items
•have no plastic or wax lining
•handle hot liquids up to 220 Fahrenheit (moisture forms at the bottom for hot food items)
•fully compostable, sturdy and strong
Though these compostable bowls are soak proof, hot items will cause the plates to "perspire" and some condensation will form at the bottom.
These products meet FDA standards for food contact and are Gluten-Free. They are made from the wheat stalks and not from the food grain which stores the proteins and allergens.
