What Makes Our Food Grade Plastic Bags FDA Compliant

You probably hear a lot about plastic, and know how common it is in your everyday life. Isn’t all plastic the same? The truth is that, to some extent, yes; all plastic does come from petroleum or natural gas. However, the processes involved for different plastics vary just as much as do plastic products.

As should be the case, any plastic that comes into contact with food and/or beverages is held to a significantly higher standard than other forms of plastic. The government has created regulations regarding food grade plastic, and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) creates these regulations.

Typically Food Grade Plastic Bags fall into one of two categories. The first and most common is the high density polyethylene (HDPE) category. This type of plastic has outstanding chemical resistant characteristics that make it impeccable for a wide variety of foods and other products. A second category is low density polyethylene (LDPE). This style withstands a lower temperature than HDPE and is great for sandwich style bags. Both of these styles can be customized to the perfect size and shape to fit your products packaging and shipping needs.
