TPE
The Meluna cups are made from TPE  aka Thermoplastic elastomers. TPE are a class of copolymers or a physical mix of polymers (usually a plastic and a rubber).
I was wondering, if TPE contains plastic, is it possible that it contains BPA or Phthalates?

It probably says so on their site. If not, ask them.

Just checked the site. The material is actually the same as is used for baby bottles (as well as various medical instruments). There are very very strict guide lines in Germany about which materials are allowed in baby bottles, which means no BPA or Phtalates are allowed in them. The Meluna website says there are no Phtalates in the cup but I haven't found any direct info for BPA. But considering they use the same material as for baby bottles I'd say there won't be any BPA in it as well. Hope that clears things a bit up. :)
