If your current paper-based solution to plastic straws is falling short of practical expectations, and you are yet to invest in a reusable metal drinking straw, then this pasta-based solution may just be for you. One thing’s for certain, get ready to see the Stroodle blow up your Instagram feed!

Following the recent ban on plastic straws in the UK, companies are getting creative to replace our beloved single-use drinking items. In comparison to paper and plastic straws, Stroodles provide greater durability, remaining in a solid state for over an hour in your favourite drinks, no more soggy paper straws! What’s more, they’re flavourless, vegan, 100% biodegradable and edible after you’re finished using them.

Made from wheat and water, this pasta-based straw is unsuitable for those with a gluten intolerance or sensitivity. However, these food-grade straws will decompose and biodegrade in just one day compared to paper straws, which require just over one month to fully decompose.


Speaking about the creation of his pasta straws, Founder, Maxim Gelmann, commented: “While we’re a very logical and effortless solution to the plastic problem, Stroodles is not just a straw company. Our driving goal is to become a vehicle for change and we hope that Stroodles can act as an enabler, subtly inspiring people to question how they consume everyday items.”


Stroodles are conscious to ensure that their production operates in an ethical and concerned nature, with any straws not conforming to their high standard being donated to local food banks, whilst a share of the sales are donated to charities who fight against plastic waste.

Stroodles are manufactured in Italy, and are available online at www.stroodles.co.uk and online at Amazon in UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. For the hospitality industry, you can purchase your pasta-based straws in bulk orders.
