Rice straws, which are edible, made of a combination of rice and tapioca, are fully biodegradable, decomposing within 90 days.
In cold drinks, the rice straws last between four and 10 hours, and two to three hours in hot drinks.
The straws, which are Halal-certified, are produced by Penang-based Nlytech Biotech Sdn Bhd.
Mr Law Yee Tee, CEO, added that the price of the rice straws “will be very much affordable compared to other types of eco-friendly straws”.
