What is Pure Grease Proof Paper?
Pure greaseproof paper is made from virgin, unbleached paper meaning it is food-safe and contains no harmful by-products. It is widely used by chefs and professional bakers to line food baskets so the grease or oil doesn't leak through the basket, it soaks up oil from fish and chips and keeps them fresh when wrapped in Grease Proof Paper. Line baking trays and pizza boxes, and wrap artisan bread loaves and paninis to prevent them going stale. Home Soap Makers use Greaseproof Paper to wrap soap bars in, keeping them from drying out and losing their smell. Greaseproof paper is also used to make "false-lids" or pot Cartouches.
What is the difference between baking paper and greaseproof paper?
Professional baking paper is siliconised on both sides of the paper and it has a slippery feel to it, which stops food from sticking, making it ideal for cooking & baking. Transpack's Greaseproof Paper is not siliconised, so if you intend on cooking with it, coat it well with oil to ensure that food does not stick. Greaseproof Paper is used predominantly as a grease barrier wrap or lining in things like snack baskets or chip baskets, fish and chip takeaways, lining of pizza boxes and food hamper boxes to keep products fresh and stop the leaching of oil from your product into the delivery box.

What is wet strength paper?
Wet Strength in paper bascially refers to how the web of fibres in the paper are formed to hold the paper together when it gets wet and how well it stands up to tearing and puncturing. Wet strength is routinely expressed as the ratio of wet to dry tensile force at break. Transpack's Greaseproof Paper has a good wet strength and makes good cartouches for sauces and simmering stews.

Dispose of your Grease Proof Paper in your household waste bins, or at an industrial compost site near you. Unfortunately, all greaseproof papers or parchment paper is not recycled yet in the UK due to concerns of grease and oil contamination on the paper.
How to wrap homemade soap bars to keep them from going dry?
Soap bars dry out quickly and lose their smell if wrapped only in paper that does not have a oil-barrier lining to it. If you pack soaps loosley into postal boxes or hamper trays, the cardboard and/or shredded paper of the boxes will leach the good oils out of your soap bars quickly. We recommend that you wrap your soap bars and wax melts in Transpack's Pure Greaseproof Paper first before you add anymore pretty packaging like sleeves or tissue paper. The greaseproof paper will stop the oils leaching out of the soap bars and preserve the lovely fragrances.
How to make a pot Cartouche or paper lid for cooking?
A pot Cartouche, also known as a paper-lid, false-lid or simmer-lid, is a piece of Greaseproof paper which you place inside a pot, on top of a stew, sauce or simmering jam or milk to prevent evaporation of liquid, prevent sauces/milk making a skin on top of the liquid and acts as a temporary steamer. It also keeps food submerged below the liquid. To make a Cartouche you simply take a sheet of Transpack's Pure Greaseproof Paper, cut a square a bit bigger than the diameter of your pot and fold it several times into a triangle going corner to corner. Once a skinny triangle, measure the triangle from the centre of your pot to the outer edge and add about 5mm extra and cut it to size. Open it up and you should have a perfect circle of paper that fits snuggly into your pot. When removing a cartouche or paper lid from the simmering pot make sure you pull it out carefully with a pair of tongs so as to not burn your hand with the steam.
