Abstract

Currently, biodegradable tableware (cutlery, plates, straws…) made of wheat or other cereals is in use. Today, the number of alternatives to plastic is increasing fastly. While coeliac sufferers share the concern for taking care of the planet, nonetheless there is a worry about how safe are these materials are for people on a gluten-free diet. What happens when they eat a gluten-free dish from a plate made of wheat bran? And what happens if they also use a, a knife, fork, and spoon made from the same material? Or if they drink a smoothie through an edible straw? Does this contaminate their food or drink with gluten?.
