Enhance Culinary Safety and Sustainability: Adopt aVenco's baking paper for PFAS-Free Baking Excellence

In the sphere of industrial product manufacturing, the prevalence of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) remains a significant concern. PFAS, known for their water and oil resistance as well as stain-repelling properties, are widespread in various products, including non-stick coatings. However, the adverse effects of PFAS exposure on human health, ranging from increased cancer risks and disruptions in thyroid function to developmental abnormalities in infants, underscore the urgency of transitioning to safer alternatives such as aVenco’s baking paper.


The contamination cycle of PFAS unfolds through various pathways within industrial settings, notably through the utilization of PFAS-laden materials in manufacturing processes and the improper disposal of waste materials. This cycle extends to soil and water sources, with PFAS leaching into the environment from discarded products in landfills. Once dispersed, PFAS exhibit remarkable persistence, accumulating in soil, water bodies, and wildlife.


PFAS, or "forever chemicals," were once common in the paper industry for creating greaseproof papers. Although they're no longer used in North America and Europe, their legacy lingers. Residues persist in the machines and surrounding environment (soil and water) where these papers were produced. This contamination can still affect current products, like parchment, baking papers, or non-stick papers made from silicone and quillon or virgin fibers. Even though these materials are safe, the lingering PFAS from past usage can contaminate them, like residual radiation after a nuclear incident. This means that traces of PFAS might still be found in papers produced today, despite the discontinuation of their use.


The potential for PFAS to leach into food at high temperatures and the risk of releasing harmful airborne particles underline the urgency of choosing PFAS-free papers. However, for consumers, identifying such products isn't straightforward. Unlike certifications like FSC® or home compost, there's little market drive to test for PFAS if the raw materials used are presumed safe and PFAS-free.


For some, minimal PFAS levels are acceptable. At aVenco, a majority women-owned company committed to sustainability and innovation, we consciously address this concern. We chose Primabake for our parchment rolls, a pioneering solution setting new standards for safety, performance, and eco-friendliness in baking. In contrast to some parchment papers containing minimal PFAS, Primabake offers superior non-stick features without sacrificing health or environmental integrity.


By selecting aVenco's parchment rolls, retailers and distributors not only protect consumer health but also endorse environmental stewardship. Produced in a PFAS-free facility with safe materials and sustainable forestry, Primabake guarantees a secure and green baking experience. With Primabake, aVenco's parchment paper rolls promise a conscientious choice, ensuring well-being and positive environmental impact.
