[購物] Costco - GLAD Press'n Seal Wrap 保鮮膜-殘膠與安全性


這款保鮮膜非常好用~ 
因一面具有黏性的特性, 所以可以製造出類似真空的效果
所以保鮮效果也非常好~ 常使用他來分裝保存 (請見分裝保存一文)

因看到有人討論此保鮮膜的黏性與健康風險問題,
故從官網整理出以下資訊,(中文為簡短翻譯 如有誤請提出~ 謝謝 ^^)

Q: What is GLAD Press'n Seal® sealable wrap? And how is it different from other plastic wraps?
A: GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap is a whole new, versatile food storage wrap that combines many benefits of today's wraps, foils, and food storage bags and containers. It goes where no wrap has ever been. While other wraps cling, GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap actually seals to surfaces including plastic, paper, wood, metal, Styrofoam® containers and glass. It's the first sealable plastic wrap.
GLAD Press’n Seal® wrap能黏著於各種物質表面,如塑膠、紙類、木頭、金屬等。

Q: How does GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap help prevent freezer burn?
A: Freezer burn occurs when food loses its moisture to surrounding air. When air reaches the surface of food, it dries it out. GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap help seal out cold freezer air to protect against freezer burn.
使用GLAD Pressn Seal® wrap能預防食品冷藏造成的脫水現象與表面乾燥硬化情況。

Q: What gives GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap its sealing qualities?
It uses Griptex®, a proprietary gripping technology. Think of the textured surface of GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap as having thousands of tiny hills and valleys. Only when you apply pressure do the valleys seal to the desired location.
A: The sealing actually works with the help of the primary ingredients typically found in chewing gum — an old idea now applied to wrap! These ingredients have been approved by the FDA for over thirty-five years and are frequently used for labels found on fruits and vegetables. Griptex® technology allows GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap to seal to plastic, paper, Styrofoam® containers, metal, wood and many other surfaces.
GLAD Pressn Seal® wrap 之所以具有如此良好的黏性是由於採用了Griptex®的專利黏著技術,就像是保鮮膜表現具有許多微小的起伏,當施予壓力時即會緊緊附著於物體表面。這項應用早在三十五年前就已被 FDA 核准使用於蔬果的標識。

Q: Does GLAD Press'n Seal® contain phthalates or BPA (Bisphenol A)?
A: NO. Glad food containers, wraps, and storage bags and other food contact products are not made of phthalates or polycarbonate. Nor is Bisphenol A (BPA) used as a raw material in their production.
GLAD Pressn Seal® wrap並未使用鄰苯二甲酸酯 (phthalates) 酚甲烷 (BPA) 製造。

* 文末有其他單位檢測的說明

Q: What happens to the seal? Does it remain on the food?
A: The sealing actually works with the help of the primary ingredients typically found in chewing gum — an old idea now applied to wrap! These ingredients have been approved by the FDA for over thirty-five years and are frequently used for labels found on fruits and vegetables. According to the FDA, small amounts of such ingredients in food do not pose any health risk.
根據FDA的標準,GLAD Pressn Seal® wrap所殘留於食物上的成分對健康尚未發現任何風險。

Q: In the past, there has been concern about particles from the plastics migrating to food when heated for cooking. Can this migration happen with GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap? If so, isn't it harmful?
A: The concern over heating plastics and migration stems from the use of chemical additives (known as plasticizers) in plastics made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). GLAD does not use any PVC plastics in its products. GLAD wraps are safe to use in the microwave.
由於GLAD Pressn Seal® wrap並未使用PVC成分,因此加熱或烹調後並不會釋出有害物質,所以可微波使用。

Q: Can GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap be recycled?
A: Like other plastic wraps, GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap is not recyclable.
GLAD Press'n Seal® wrap並不適合回收。
