Is it unhealthy to heat the bag using this technique?

In the Ask our Chef section we have received the following question.

I have always heard that it is unhealthy to heat the bag using this technique, is that true?

It must be understood that any bag that is in contact with food must be authorized and approved for food contact. In addition, depending on how it’s served (cold or hot), the wrapper should be prepared to withstand the necessary temperatures.

The most important aspect regarding the packaging is that with exposure to heat and cold and acidity and salinity, the plastics or materials of which it is composed do not migrate to the food.

If you need safe bags, we recommend these.
