What is Corn Starch Bioplastic?

For many centuries the maize grain known as corn has provided the world with an important source of food which can be grown easily and economically. With the future preservation of the planet becoming an increasingly important global phenomenon corn has gained an additional role as a vitally important crop.

Corn starch is the starch of the corn grain and has taken on the principle role in the production of BIOPLASTICS. Bioplastics, also known as organic plastics, are a form of plastic derived from renewable biomass sources (such as corn starch) rather than fossil fuel plastics which are derived from petroleum.

In short JMP Holdings Corn Starch Plastic products look and feel like the regular plastic that we are accustom to however use up to 80% less plastic derived from fossil fuels.
