Safe water bottles for people with a corn allergy.

I went water bottle hunting. It took a little while. I sat with my cell phone in a camping chair at Dick's Sporting Goods and started calling companies. I hope you can find my research helpful. If you have found a great water bottle safe for corn allergic folks, please share!


  • Nathan's water bottles' straw is made out of polyethanol. Ethanol is made of corn.


  • Nalgene water bottles contain polypropylene which MAY be made from corn.


  • Sigg refuses to say what their lining is made from; Sissy is way too sensitive to take a chance on a mystery lining.


  • Camelbak is totally safe and reasonably priced!

They have both metal and plastic - which is actually a form of polyester and is BPA free.

  • Klean Kanteen is made from 18/8 Stainless Steel and has no lining. The cap has polypropylene, but not on a part which touches the water. Safe for people with a corn allergy.

Klean Kanteen Stainless-Steel Water Bottle with Loop-Top Cap - 27 fl. oz.The only downside to Klean Kanteen is the price. They can be expensive - but you really are paying for quality.
