Bamboo fibre mostly comprises powder ground out of either end of life bamboo products - such as chopsticks, placemats, decking and scaffolding - or the offcuts from their production. This powder is mixed with organic corn starch, a small amount of resin (melamine) for binding and food grade dyes.
Composition of Bamboo Fibre
Bamboo Fibre is made up of several ingredients. Whilst the exact balance can vary according to the item being produced, a typical batch of Bamboo Fibre comprises:
70% Bamboo powder
20% Melamine Resin
Bamboo Fibre is BPA free.
Melamine Resin in Bamboo Fibre
Melamine resin is typically used to bind bamboo fibre composites. It is a polymer of the organic compound melamine and naturally occurring formaldehyde. Progress has been made on alternative resins, but costs remain prohibitive. All reasonably priced Bamboo Fibre products contain melamine resin.
