Today, paper food packaging has emerged in every corner of people’s lives. In the supermarket, cartons, paper bags, paper tubes, and paper cans are all in abundance. Grains, flour, rice, snacks, and biscuits are placed in paper bags and paper cans. Various beverages, such as juice, vegetable juice, milk, yogurt, etc., use paper. Boxes are used; fast food restaurants, street stalls and cinemas, fried foods, snacks, and popcorn are also widely used in paper bags. The use of steamer paper and baking paper is also increasing year by year. However, it should be pointed out that the media frequently exposed scandals about food packaging, because some unlicensed factories use non-food grade paper and ink at will. It can be said that from the source, preventing unqualified paper from entering the food packaging field is the top priority of the food safety problem.
A problem with the sampling paper, a major performance is the addition of fluorescent whitening agents. Fluorescent whitening agent is a chemical dye that has carcinogenic effects and poses a potential threat to people’s health. It is not allowed to be used in food packaging according to regulations. Some manufacturers use recycled paper in whole or in part during the production process. In the recovered waste paper, an optical brightener may be present. In addition, the addition of fluorescent whitening agents to waste paper pulp increases the whiteness of the paper, which is much lower than the cost of paper using virgin wood pulp. When paper is produced from waste paper, the ink pigment can be removed by deinking, but toxic substances such as lead, bismuth, and polychlorinated biphenyl can remain in the pulp, and the food will be contaminated as food packaging paper.
The use of paper as a food packaging abroad has been around for many years. In the United States, before the food is marketed, manufacturers should provide the FDA with information on the safety performance, chemical composition and environmental impact of packaging materials. The FDA will conduct a series of tests on packaging materials, including how the chemicals in the packaging will be transferred and accumulated in the food under heating, refrigeration, high pressure, etc., and how much of such substances may be contacted or absorbed by the consumer. Below what level does not affect health and so on. The FDA will then issue a packaging safety report that will determine whether or not to approve such a package. If you do not have FDA certification, unauthorized use of food packaging will result in heavy penalties.
It is precisely because of the huge market of domestic food paper packaging, and the current stage of food packaging paper has great quality differences at home and abroad. CYY Team has been committed to promoting food grade paper packaging in China. The kraft paper bags sold are made of raw wood pulp paper. The kraft paper used for production can provide FDA and British BRC standards.
Why use raw wood pulp paper as a raw material for paper bags?
◆ Paper using virgin wood pulp is not at risk of contamination, can be safely contacted with food, and does not transfer harmful ingredients to food.
◆The ability of pristine wood pulp fiber to resist puncture and tear is much higher than that of recycled pulp. Paper bags made of recycled paper often need to be repackaged to meet the required strength. The use of raw wood pulp can reduce the paper consumption of paper bags and improve resources. The use efficiency; good stiffness can better play the function of the paper bag and improve the beauty of the package.
◆The original wood pulp kraft paper makes the characteristics and use of the packaging more in line with the needs of the brand. The paper has more tactile sensation and good printing effect. The surface uniformity of the recycled pulp paper can not be controlled. After repeated use, the fiber length is different, resulting in different places of paper. Different strength.
◆ Native wood pulp paper gives consumers a good sense of smell. The sense of smell is one of the five brands’ loyalty feelings. The paper produced from the original wood pulp paper has no peculiar smell.
At the same time, it also provides waterproof and oil resistant, suitable for cold chain distribution, carton packaging with coated cattle card as raw material. In the process of promotion, it is found that consumers’ consumption habits and traditional concepts are slowly changing. For example, the original recognition of natural kraft paper is not as good as white kraft paper. It is considered that the coated cow card with brown bottom is not as clean as white paper. In fact, natural kraft paper and coated cattle cards are widely used by foreign companies for food packaging.
