phade® Straws & Stirrers
These straws and stirrers act and feel like regular old plastic. The catch? They’re made with eco-friendly materials, which means they’re 100% marine and soil biodegradable. In other words, there’s never been a better way to suck.
Our products are 100% gluten free. PHA is made from the fermentation of canola oil (feeding canola oil to bacteria). Naturally, canola oil is gluten free, but the fermentation process (the consumption of canola oil by bacteria) and the storage of the canola as energy reserves within the bacteria also eliminates any connection to the canola. The bacteria consume the oil; we extract the energy reserves from the bacteria, and that becomes PHA.
