iHerb Customer Reviews
World Centric, Corn and Talc Spoons are the best disposable cutlery available. I hated the waste and pollution associated with disposable plastic cutlery, which is why I was so pleased to find this product. It's also good that these spoons are made from GMO-free corn, and that the manufacturer is a "B corporation". One note about composting: I added some of these spoons to my compost months ago and they have yet to be broken down at all. These spoons probably are compostable, but only after quite a long period of time.
These spoons are great and sturdy too. If you use for coffee or hot tea be sure not to leave in or they will get soft but they won't melt. The best part is they're not plastic so you don't have to worry about any toxin transfer especially when using with warm or hot foods.
