Is there alimentary kraft paper?
We have seen an increase in kraft paper in the food industry, but ultimately "What is Kraft Paper?"
It is never too much to explain that kraft is the result of the mixture of several types of cellulose fibers that are obtained in the pulp of wood called “softwood”, and because it contains all the varied mixture of fibers, kraft becomes resistant, maintaining its rustic appearance , its peculiar texture and flexibility.
It is important to say that the cellulose used in kraft does not contain bleaching processes, and is therefore recognised for its natural brown colour.
In terms of the technical manufacturing process, kraft paper is not able to be in direct contact with food, so our customer’s big question arises, "Is there alimentary kraft paper?"
The FOOD PAPER thought to produce a kraft paper that would be in contact with food and still be able to be personalised. It was an intense process, but after a lot of work we managed to get our printed alimentary kraft paper with sustainable, biodegradable, recyclable and Eco Friendly properties.
What is printed alimentary kraft paper used for?
This paper has great versatility, depending on the chosen grammage, but it is totally suitable for direct contact with food - from wrapping Hamburgers to the manufacture of food packaging and boxes.
