Considering the Alternatives to PFAS in Paper Food Packaging

Considering the Alternatives to PFAS in Paper Food Packaging

Per‐ and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been used in food contact paper and paperboard for decades due to their unique ability to provide both moisture and oil/grease resistance. This article1 reviews the development of PFAS, their use in food service items, and present alternatives to PFAS chemicals for providing moisture and oil/grease resistance in food packaging.
