        The pros and cons of food packaging will directly affect the safety and hygiene of food, but some food plastic packaging on the market currently has various problems. How to choose safe and hygienic food packaging or containers, Professor Han Yongsheng from the School of Packaging and Printing Engineering of Tianjin University of Science and Technology gave some suggestions. Professor Han believes that the first thing to look at is to choose transparent and colorless packaging or containers as much as possible. Many red and blue plastic bags on the market have hidden safety and sanitary hazards. It is best not to use the food directly ingested; secondly, touch, if the ink outside the package can be wiped off with your hands, do not use it; smell again, If the plastic bag has a pungent smell, it indicates that more additives have been added, and some of these additives are harmful to human health; and it is recommended to buy large brands of packaged foods, so there is a risk of packaging safety and sanitation problems. Smaller.

        For the health of your family and yourself, it is particularly important to understand the relevant professional knowledge of some commonly used food-grade plastic products. Such as PE polyethylene, divided into LDPE low-density high-pressure polyethylene and HDPE high-density polyethylene. PP is harder, HDPE is harder than PP, and LDPE is softer. HDPE is generally hollow. The cuts of LDPE are not neat, and the cuts of PP are flatter. The way to distinguish between PP and PE is to touch it with your hands. The softer is PE and the harder is PP.

Food-grade plastic bags can precipitate harmful substances when exposed to high temperatures. Experts recommend that plastic bags be used with caution

   Stalls use non-food grade plastic bags    Yangcheng Evening News reporter's investigation found that on the streets of Guangzhou, many supper stalls and food stalls directly use plastic bags to cover bowls for food. If some customers ask to be taken away, the owner will also use plastic bags.    At the Guangzhou Nantian International Hotel Supplies Wholesale Market, the reporter saw that there are many kinds of plastic bags with different prices. The price of plastic bags with food special marks and plastic bags without food special marks is two to five times different. In a wholesale store, a white plastic bag does not have any text signs, and the price is 4 yuan per bundle (100 pieces). Merchants said that in order to reduce costs, this plastic bag is very popular with various small food stalls.    experiment   Fire to identify whether plastic bags are poisonous Can the food in plastic bags be eaten safely? In this regard, a reporter from the Yangcheng Evening News bought several ordinary plastic bags (PVC polyvinyl chloride) and food-grade plastic bags (PE polyethylene), and sent them to Guangzhou every week for food and drug safety inspections. The institute conducts tests. The researchers conducted two sets of tests using the fire detection method and the high oil temperature hot melt performance detection method. Fire detection method: In a special laboratory cabinet, the researchers lit PE plastic bags and PVC plastic bags respectively. The former burned quickly after being ignited, and the flame was yellow. When it burned, it was like a candle with melt dripping on the ground; the latter flame It is yellow-green, flame-retardant and non-flammable. High oil temperature hot melt performance detection method: PVC plastic bags begin to deform when the oil temperature reaches 90℃, and their components will melt as the oil temperature rises; when the oil temperature exceeds 100℃, PE plastic bags will also slow down Slowly begin to soften and deform, and melt and melt as the oil temperature rises.   The staff said that general consumers can judge whether plastic bags are poisonous by hand: non-toxic plastic bags are milky white or colorless and transparent, and feel lubricious when touched; toxic plastic bags are cloudy or light yellow in color, and feel sticky.    remind    Use plastic bags carefully for food    Zhu Yi, an associate professor at the School of Food Science and Nutritional Engineering, China Agricultural University, told the Yangcheng Evening News reporter that food-grade plastic bags are relatively safe to contain food. But if it encounters high temperature and high oil, the heavy metals, plasticizers and some unstable substances in the plastic bag will dissolve into the food and cause harm to the human body. She suggested that plastic bags should be used sparingly or with caution.

Food grade PP sheets are often used for quick-frozen dumplings and microwave-heated food packaging. 3. HDPE plastic: commonly known as high-density polyethylene, it has higher service temperature, hardness, mechanical strength and good chemical resistance. It is a non-toxic and safe material and is often used in the production of plastic containers for food. 4. LDPE plastic: commonly known as low-density polyethylene, products made from it have the characteristics of odorless, odorless, non-toxic, and matt surface.
