Is it possible to microwave food with paper package directly? 

Author:


With the popularity of takeout food, there are more and more types of food packaging.  As we all know, for environmental protection and food safety, consumers are more willing to accept takeaway food like pizzas and burgers packed with packaging which is made from paper. However, after a long period of delivery, the food will be cold and lose flavor.  Can we put the food and the paper packaging in the microwave directly? Will it be harmful to human bodies? Let's discuss it together.

If you have observed closely, you will find the inside of the paper food packaging feels slippery. 

This slippery layer is called "coating" which is equivalent to a layer of transparent film covering the paper. At Sowinpak, you can choose PE/PP/PLA/PET coating to meet your market needs. In this way, the paper food packaging can be well insulated from water and oil. Besides, PP/PET coating can be heated over 100℃. In addition, we provide you a kind of more eco-friendly choice that our aqueous coating is plastic-reduction.

Microwave heating works by making molecules in food liven up and rubbing them together to generate heat.

Microwave heating greatly heats the water in the substance, and water boils when heated to 100℃, while PP/PET coatings are resistant to over 150 ℃, so the plastic material in the coating will not be transferred to the food. Meanwhile, we use all food grade materials, which are healthy and safe, in line with food grade certification EU10/2011 and other multiple certifications. No harmful substances will be precipitated under microwave conditions. 

It is safe to heat the paper food packaging in the microwave oven when you choose the right materials.
