South Koreans Are Turning to Rice Straws After Plastic Ban

In the push against using plastic straws, South Korea has found a novel use for rice – Rice Straws!

Many restaurants in the United States are replacing their plastic straws with pasta straws.

The South Korean Straws are 70% rice and 30% tapioca.

Rice straws are a great gluten-free option!

Amazon has several for sale. We haven’t tried them yet, but we have reached out to the companies to ask them if they are gluten-free and are waiting to hear back.

[Edit: CocoBoo Rice Straws are gluten-free according to the company.]

Have you used rice straws? Let us know which ones work best for you! Thanks!
