Vegetable oil Treated Bags
Hydrocarbon free bags are now increasingly used in the agro-based industries. Traditional jute bags contain mineral-oil based batching oil and therefore there is a chance of contamination and odor from the oil. To remove this problem, jute manufacturing process use vegetable batching oil. Thus the bags are protected against any contamination of hydrocarbons as well as devoid of kerosene odor. With the use of vegetable oil, hydrocarbon free bags meet international quality standards of packing agro-based products.
Some of the key advantages of using hydrocarbon free bags are following:
- Safest way to pack agro-based products as the bag preserves in the most natural way
- Use of non-toxic vegetable oil is compulsory for packing some agro-based products
- The advantages of jute biodegradability, breathability and other benefits remain intact
- No off flavors or taste when edibles are stored in the bag.
These bags are now popular in packing rice, potato, cocoa, coffee, peanuts, and onion among others. We can also include a tag on the bag with ‘Vegetable oil treated – IJO98/01 Standard’ sign for greater awareness.
