They are produced from wheat flour, instead of the traditional petrochemical compound. The firm proudly announces that this transformation from wheat grains is helping to reduce global warming, reducing the greenhouse gas components.

In addition, the grain of wheat being produced by photosynthesis, it consumes carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and will thus contribute to the reduction of global warming. "
