Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals often found in food packaging, cookware, and other products designed to hold or cook food. PFAS are used to coat foodservice products, as the chemicals help prevent containers or cups from soaking up grease, oils, and water.
WHY ARE PFAS USED IN FOOD PACKAGING?
With their superior grease and oil resistance, moisture-proofing capabilities, heat tolerance, and non-stick properties - PFAS have become popular as an additive to plant fiber-based food packaging. PFAS is commonly used to coat products like wrappers, popcorn bags, and pizza boxes due to its ability to lock in messy orders and maintain the quality of dishes. However, PFAS have been linked to numerous health and environmental issues, causing states to create regulations to eliminate the use of PFAS for coating foodservice items.
WHICH MATERIALS DO NOT CONTAIN PFAS?
Taking proactive steps to reduce your PFAS exposure can be complicated, as numerous products may contain these forever chemicals. Fortunately, there are plenty of suitable substitutes available with equal performance qualities. Below is a list of materials you can use that do not have PFAS added:
No PFAS added paper
No PFAS added bagasse
