How Corn Floss is made
MiECO corn floss is made of PLA a polylactic acid which is made from corn starch.
It is derived from renewable biomass typically from fermented plant starch like our floss which is made from corn. It is made from the sugars in corn starch. It feels and looks like plastic but is 100% biodegradable and compostable!
The starch is converted into a polymer, the main ingredient in materials that have a plastic-like feel. This is why corn starch bio compostable are sometimes called PLA plastics. PLA plastics are molded the same way conventional plastic is.
PLA is manufactured from renewable sources and is compostable, addressing problems in solid waste disposal and lessening our dependence on petroleum-based raw materials.
