At HMZ Technology, we pledge to deliver top-tier food packaging solutions. A prevalent inquiry we get is: Does bagasse tableware contain PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances)?

Yes, some bagasse tableware might contain PFAS. However, it’s worth noting that we also produce PFAS-free bagasse tableware, and we proudly possess certificates to prove this absence of PFAS.

Let’s delve deeper.

What is PFAS?

PFAS are man-made chemicals that have been utilized in various industries since the 1940s. Due to their resistance to heat, water, and oil, they’ve become a popular choice in food packaging to prevent leakage and maintain product quality(Source ATSDR).

However, with rising concerns about their potential health and environmental implications, it’s vital to understand where and why they’re used.

HMZ Technology’s Bagasse Products

Derived from sugarcane residue, our bagasse tableware is organic and biodegradable. But in the journey of converting this raw material into durable tableware, the production process might sometimes introduce PFAS.

Yet, at HMZ Technology, we provide options. We offer bagasse products devoid of PFAS and back this claim with valid certificates, allowing our customers to make informed choices.
