Are HAY! Straws® Gluten-Free?
Yes, our straws are gluten free. Our Original Straws and stir sticks are made from the stem of a wheat plant, which typically doesn't contain gluten (that's in the grain). To be sure our customers are safe we test each batch of our straws for gluten. We are happy to report our results are negative or undetectable. The gluten Free Organization's standards for a food or product to be gluten free is under 10ppm, which ours is and we are working to get our official certification.
Do HAY! Straws contain wheat?
Yes, Original HAY! Straws® and Stir sticks are made from the stem of the wheat plant. HAY! Straws® are not intended to be eaten or digested and should only be used as a straw to drink various liquids. Our straws are washed thoroughly three times before packing to ensure quality. Our jumbo collection is wheat and gluten free and is made of a different plant stem.

Can HAY! Straws® and Stir Sticks be used in hot beverages?
Yes, HAY! Straws can be used in hot and cold beverages and unlike paper, they don't get soggy. Straw is naturally water resistant so it holds up well in liquids over time.
How do I dispose of HAY! Straws?
Our straws are 100% natural and do not contain any coatings or waxes. They can be placed in backyard compost bins or can be composted through municipal facilities, by placing in a food scraps or compostable bin. Essentially it's like putting hay or straw in the compost. We estimate the breakdown time to be between 2-4 months depending on the conditions.
