STRAW OF STARCH / Straw

STRAW OF STARCH

When people use straw, they always face two problems, the first one is that the ordinary straw is made up of plastic, as it’s not hard enough that you willfind it difficult to open it because of the bend.Moreover,the beverage will be exposed to the air for too long and it can lead to the deterioration of the drink. To solve these problems, we prefer to take advantage of starch to be the raw source for the straw.For one thing, the quality of starch is harder which won’t result in bend when using it, and with the passage of time, it can be dissolved inside the drink so that people are able to be informed of the deteriorated drink.
