Many plastics today are made with corn, including plastic bags. It is a remarkably efficient, earth-friendly technology that does mankind a multitude of favors.
After some poking around online I was shocked to find just how fast the newer bio-degradable bags decompose. In fact, some of the more eco-friendly bags can decompose within 60 days!
What does this mean to those of us with a corn allergy? The second those bags get damp they begin smearing your safe, farmer’s market produce with toxic corn snot. It happens fast and explains more than a few mysterious reactions I have had to perfectly safe produce.
