Whenever we go on camping trips, picnics, or parties, the usual eating utensils we use are made of plastic. After using these, what do you do with them? Chances are you throw them away, where they become a part of the world’s pollution. This won’t be a problem anymore, thanks to a new product from Bakeys. Bakeys, an India-based start-up, has created what they call “Edible Cutlery” wherein you can eat your utensils after using them to eat your meals! Edible Cutlery are plant based eating utensils that are totally safe to eat. Yup, edible utensils are here.

The edible utensils include wheat, rice, and water as the key ingredients. Bakeys doesn’t add preservatives or dyes to their edible utensils. They also have flavored versions of the utensils, for the sweet flavored ones they add sugar and a mixture of rock salt, black pepper, and cumin. A spice called ajwain is added for the savory flavored utensils. They also have special order flavors like Hot n’ spicy, onion and tomato, garlic, and ginger.
