Ever gone to a restaurant and after finishing your meal you see your fellow diners devouring their plate, spoons and cups? You would think they have gone crazy.
Well this is what Sheryl Mboya, a student at Mt Kenya university innovated. Through her company Snack IT, Sheryl has invented edible cutlery to replace kitchenware that is made from non-biodegradable material such as metal and glass.
Her innovation is an environmental friendly alternative to single use plastics.
Just like how one can consume their cone after consuming ice cream, is the same way once can consume their plate, spoon or cup after eating or drinking its contents.
The cutlery is made from completely edible food stuff and she has taken into consideration the diet, taste, and the preference of the end user.
The basic ingredient she uses in her innovation is gluten free flour to cater to those with gluten allergy.
