Pizza boxes from Turkey, Chinese or Italian pizza boxes?
What do you prefer? Pizza boxes from Turkey, China or Italian pizza boxes? Is there a difference between them?
Which Pizza box you prefer to use? Certified or not certified?
Think about this, there are a lot of complaints about chemicals in Pizzaboxes such as this test from Denmark:
Tests confirm content of fluorinated substances in pizza boxes.
Do you know which chemicals your pizza is in close contact with in the pizza box? Content of problematic substances is confirmed by a new test from the Danish Consumer Council THINK Chemicals.
The test was conducted as a random check of three different pizza boxes – Domino’s Pizza, Linea Ecobox and a pizza box from a local pizzeria. In all three cases fluorinated substances were found in quantities which by far exceed the guiding threshold limit value in Denmark which was set in August 2015 by the Danish food authorities.
Pizza boxes contained several other problematic chemicals.
Besides fluorinated substances the pizza boxes also contained a number of other chemical substances which are suspected to be either endocrine disrupting or cancer-causing. These chemicals were mineral oils, phthalates, bisphenol A and nonylphenol. It is likely that these substances – like the fluorinated substances – come from recycling material.
“It was surprising that we found known endocrine disruptors in all three pizza boxes. Furthermore we have no reason to believe that the problem with these chemicals does not concern other pizza boxes, since the results from the boxes are very similar,” says Stine Müller, project manager at the Danish Consumer Council THINK Chemicals.
She stresses that the pizza boxes has solely been tested for content of problematic chemicals. The Danish Consumer Council THINK Chemicals cannot say to which degree the substances migrate into the pizza.
How do Italian Pizza box manufacturers produce their boxes?
Italian Pizza box manufacturers are by law forced to only use certified material and Virgin material for the part of the box which is in direct contact with the Pizza.
Italian Pizza boxes are European Certified products, there are NO chemicals in the material of the boxes, NO recycled material in direct contact with the Pizza. Not only the the materials are certified but also many of the manufacturers are ISO certified.
But as you did see in the article above not all Italian Pizza box producers do comply to this law! We advise you to ask your supplier for all of the needed certificates!
What does heat of the Pizza do to a Pizza box?
Do think about this: the Pizza box is exposed to a intense heat if the Pizza is placed in the box, this can cause a big change in the taste of the Pizza if it’s in a Pizza box made of not certified materials.
The other thing which many times happens is this, because the material of a not certified box can’t absorb the heat well and start falling apart because of the humidity which occurs with a hot Pizza in a ‘cold’ box and in a colder outside temperature.
