Tableware made from bamboo is BPA free, which is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins. The resin used to bind the bamboo is a vegetable resin. The colours are achieved by a vegetable dye. The products are also phthalates free (a chemical used for longevity).
Bamboo products are Foodsafe approved by LFGB (in Europe) and FDA. These organisations carry out food container contact tests. The tests include soaking the container with different types of liquid for a period of time and temperature tests. FDA is the minimum standard of testing in Australia.
Hot and cold food – no problem whatsoever.
