Cutlery made out of potato starch

VegWare makes "durable," disposable, degradable cutlery out of pressed potato starch and oil:

Durable means that it will withstand the rigors of dining on foods which exert greater levels of force on the cutlery, such as hard ice cream, stabbing carrots onto a fork, etc. Durable has no relationship with biodegradable – they are completely independent characteristics. Wood is biodegradable, but people build homes which are 'durable', lasting hundreds of years. However, allow the wood to become moist and dry rot sets in, i.e. moisture, heat, and microorganisms, also known as biodegradation.
