Waste can be valuable. In fact, leftovers from tequila production can be made into cutlery.

Now, a German-Indian startup from Mannheim has developed edible, vegetarian spoons. The key ingredient in their recipe is a grain mix.

It is fashioned into shape by robots using a patented, automatised process. The cutlery is suitable for all dishes, and retains its shape in hot drinks and soups for up to a quarter of an hour.

For cold or frozen foods this figure is more than doubled and may even be 1 hour. Afterwards the spoon can be nibbled like a biscuit.

Zero waste, and zero washing up. Alternatively the spoons can be composted, gone in 30 days.

A good recipe.
