A company in Taiwan makes dinnerware out of wheat.

Now you can go beyond just licking your plate clean. A company in Taiwan literally makes plates, spoons, bowls, and chopsticks out of wheat- so you can EAT your utensils! They were inspired by trenchers; plates cut from stale loaves of bread to hold food , salt, and even candles during the Medieval times.

The disposable dinnerware is made from hardtack, a biscuit dough made from flour, water, and salt that has been traditionally used as dry emergency rations at sea. The dishes can be kept up for months when dry. The dishes are produced by the Koratt bakery and cafe, and were exhibited by Designing 10 in Fukoka, Japan.
