What I have heard was that the paperware is made with straw, not the seed/ protein portion. And something about the process makes it unlikely to get any gluten, even if eating the paper plate. But they seem to be expensive, so I doubt gets used much.
They do produce a biodegradable cup, plates, utensils, etc. now with wheat flour\starch. Doubt you will run into these in a public store, they are a specialty product for these eco freaks that thing should be edible/biodegradable. I understand the hair product issue, I have long hair that can blow into my mouth or I move constantly with my hands. First few months gluten-free I was using a shampoo that used wheat protein in it.....took me awhile to learn that issue kept poison myself.
I agree with Gemini! On all points. I do try to have gluten-free shampoo because I seem to get I in my mouth. It's not too hard - I just look for " wheat". Lots of shampoos do not contain gluten.
And I don't worry about paper cups.
They look good and if I manage to track them down I'll let you know ... but I haven't seen them either.
BTW I'm sorry I reminded you of something you didn't realise you missed!
What I really miss at the moment is one of those doughnuts with icing on them.
I think I spot a hole in the market! Tee hee!
