You've probably seen or used white and brown baking paper, but have you ever wondered what the difference is between the two? Is it just a different color, or is there a fundamental difference? Which one is more environmentally friendly? Today we're going to talk to you about which is more environmentally friendly, white or brown?

Both baking papers are made from virgin wood pulp fibers and contain no ink or chemical residues. The wood contains a material called lignin, which makes the branches stand up straight. Lignin is naturally brown in color and is removed from the wood fibers by bleaching to produce a white paper for sale. Nature Paper food wrapping paper is guaranteed to meet the highest safety and hygiene requirements with modern elemental chlorine-free ECF technology.

The difference between white and brown baking paper
The brown baking paper contains more linolenic compounds. This may affect the taste and smell of the food and although it is said to be harmless, it may not be acceptable for end-use applications. For example, it is not recommended to wrap chocolate or tea leaves for long periods.

White baking paper is preferred for professional use
Professional kitchens and industrial food processing machines require high standards of safety and hygiene, so it is essential to avoid possible contamination and substandard conditions. White baking paper is preferred for professional use because it shows impurities more quickly and clearly, and the obvious comparison between food and paper allows a quick check for deviations from standards.

The environmental impact of white and brown baking paper is evenly split
Although brown baking paper may appear to be more environmentally friendly, both colors are equally environmentally friendly. The white baking paper has a lower environmental impact in the manufacturing process.

The production and sale of brown baking paper require more energy. This is because it contains more lignin compounds, which have to be refined to a higher standard and are therefore produced and sold more slowly. It consumes 20 kW/h more energy per tonne of the product than bleached baking paper. To ensure the safety of baking paper in contact with food, Nature Paper carefully selects its raw materials, conducts finished product testing, carefully monitors the entire production process, and is certified safe by a third-party body.
