Mineral oil components in foods are undesirable and harmful. It has been proven that saturated mineral oils (MOSH) accumulate in the human body, and aromatic mineral oils (MOAH) are considered carcinogenic.
A source of mineral oils often found in food, is the paperboard packaging made from waste paper. The recycled fibers contained therein include, for example, mineral oils from newsprint inks. These oils evaporate, penetrate conventional gaseous paper, cardboard and some plastics, and accumulate in food. Sources are therefore both the primary packaging made from recycled solid board and corrugated board.
Particularly affected by the subject matter are long-lasting foods that are otherwise adequately protected by paper packaging.
DREWSEN SPEZIALPAPIERE has developed a packaging paper that can replace previous paper packaging materials, and provide an effective barrier against mineral oil migration. A barrier layer of natural, vegetable and mineral components prevents gaseous mineral oil constituents from passing into the interior of the package.
