Kurkure Plastic Rumor

Andrea Hamilton Jun 25, 2009

Kurkure plastic rumor has been making a lot of rounds these days. Such is the impact of the rumor on the minds of the consumers that people have actually started thinking that Kurkure contains plastic. Do you too believe in the rumor?

If you believe in the rumor, then continue reading this article as it is specially for you. Kurkure is in the Indian market for years now. People have been munching Kurkure with great delight including me. It is fundoo timepass snack. The new Kurkure that is released in the Wheat flavor has exceptionally great taste.

But the Kurkure plastic rumor is truly disgusting. How can a product like Kurkure, contain plastic overnight when it is manufactured with ingredients that all we Indians use daily in our Indian kitchen. Kurkure ingredients include rice meal, corn meal, gram meal, salt, spices, seasonings, edible oils, etc. Is any of these ingredients mentioned here contain or is plastic? The answer is No. All these ingredients are healthy ingredients that are used in the manufacture of Kurkure.

As per the Kurkure plastic rumor, when you burn Kurkure it melts. Definitely, when you burn Kurkure, Kurkure melts. The reason why Kurkure melts is because Kurkure contains carbohydrate in the form of corn starch. When any carbohydrate snack (like gol gappas, matharees and namkeens) is burnt, it burns the same way like Kurkure burns. But that does not mean that those snacks contain plastic.

    I think we shud pay no attention to kurkure plastic rumors because any food with some oil content and corn starch will burn that way. But then it is high on nutrition and taste so i am least bothered about these rumors.

    Even I heard about this Kurkure plastic rumor. One of my friends had forwarded me this mail but it sounded very vague to be true. So I checked the official website of Kurkure at http://kurkure.in/FAQ.aspx and found that someone is spreading that rumor about Kurkure containing plastic. In reality, there is no plastic in Kurkure. So I can still enjoy munching my Kurkre with the same zeal. How cool is that! Cheers people!

    No big company manufacturing snacks with plastic or any other harmful ingrediants will ever mention those harmful iingrediants on the pack!

    I heard about the Kurkure plastic rumour and I feel this is just a rumour and nothing more than that.

    Came across the Kurkure Plastic Rumour. Cannot believe it to be true. How can Kurkure contain plastic when it is made from edible ingredients that we use in our daily kitchen.

    there is no plastic in Kurkure as it contains everyday kitchen ingredients like daal, corn, rice and spices all just a rumor that it contains plastic. I was also believing the same until I found this Tumblr profile https://itrustkurkure.tumblr.com/ where they are showing a video of Kurkure plant.
