Plate - Cornstarch
As the name implies, corn starch biocompostables are made from corn starch. The starch is converted into a polymer, the main ingredient in materials that have a plastic-like feel.
Biocompostable plastic must not produce any toxic substances as it decomposes. It must also break down to the point that it cannot be discerned or filtered out of the surrounding compost. PLA plastics cannot be recycled. They must be composted.
The Benefits of Corn Starch Biocompostables
No toxic chemicals associated with conventional plastic (such as polyvinyl chloride or dioxin)
Can be disposed of in your home compost pile
Eco-friendly (made from a renewable resource and less wasteful)
Especially well-suited for cold applications, such as in the freezer (this is good news, since chemicals from conventional plastic tend to leach into food when frozen)
Corn allergies are not an issue since the allergen, profilin, is destroyed in the manufacturing process.
