How to Choose Bamboo Fiber Tableware
Faced with the increasingly severe climate problem-the "greenhouse effect", the impact of the environment on people is becoming more and more important. The main reason for the greenhouse effect is that people use too much chemical dyes, which leads to too high carbon dioxide content in the air.
In order to alleviate the pressure brought by the environment, more and more people are beginning to use environmentally friendly and degradable raw materials. Bamboo has become the best material because bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth and does not require fertilization. Bamboo fiber is a new energy-saving raw material that reduces carbon production, lowers greenhouse gas emissions, and takes good care of the human living environment. People press bamboo into powder and mix it with corn starch and melamine to make bamboo fiber tableware of various shapes and styles.
What is bamboo fiber tableware?
The bamboo fiber tableware on the market is composed of three main raw materials: bamboo fiber, melamine, cornstarch, and other natural fibers. After being processed by modern special high-tech technology, cellulose is extracted from the bamboo, mixed with plant fiber, corn starch, and food-grade resin. Since bamboo is a natural renewable resource, it is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. The growth environment of bamboo does not require all kinds of chemical fertilizers and does not consume too much water. It can also produce negative ions and has Anti-insect and antibacterial properties, thereby avoiding various types of pollution.

Compare to Melamine tableware
Melamine tableware is formed by heating and pressing melamine resin powder. It is used in the catering industry and children's catering industry for its light weight, beautiful appearance, low temperature resistance, and non-breakability. Due to the special molecular structure of melamine plastic, melamine tableware is not suitable for use in microwave ovens, and cracking will occur if used.
Melamine tableware can not be washed with steel wire balls, it will wash away the gloss of the tableware surface and leave many scratches. If the melamine tableware is used for a long time, stubborn stains such as melamine bowls and dishes adsorbing pigments, oil stains, coffee stains, etc. will make the melamine tableware yellow and black. It is molded by heating and pressurizing melamine resin powder. The properties of qualified products are relatively stable, but the melamine and formaldehyde resins in inferior products are very unstable. Especially at high temperatures, it is likely to release melamine molecules. If you often put inferior melamine plastic tableware containing food into a microwave oven to heat it, the danger is very high. Can not be used for baking in the oven and microwave.
