What are Disposable Gloves Typically Made of?

Here are the most popular materials when it comes to selecting gloves for food prep.

Vinyl Gloves

Vinyl Disposable Gloves

Vinyl is also a natural material and is a popular choice. It is ideal for food preparation and is relatively inexpensive. It can handle everything from water to grease. These are commonly used for employees prepping counter service or floor service. They are great for manipulating cold foods such as yogurt or ice cream. 


Poly Gloves

Polyethylene Plastic Disposable Gloves

Polyethylene is a synthetic material that is commonly known as plastic. They are the most economical gloves, thin and made for light-duty tasks and come in handy in settings where frequent glove changes are necessary. These are commonly used in fast food chains, buffets, and sandwich delis where glove changes happen frequently as tasks change. They are convenient, but due to the high usage, can be one of the least earth-friendly options.


Compostable Biodegradable Biopolymer Gloves

Eco-Friendly Disposable Gloves

Biopolymers and Compostable Polymers are essentially bio-based plastics  that are produced from natural sources and chemically synthesized from biological materials. This material resembles plastics visually and tactically but are actually biodegradable or compostable. They are a great alternative to polyethylene gloves because they serve the same function, can be used in food handling and are great for tasks that require frequent glove changing. And what’s even better is that they emit 80% less carbon dioxide in the manufacturing process than petrochemical-based gloves and leave behind no toxins when they break down at the end of their life.
