Adhesives in Food Packaging: Did You Know?

Did you know that the glue used to assemble and seal the box of that cereal you eat every morning is governed by the FDA? Every ingredient used to bond or seal things like cereal boxes, pasta packaging, French fry holders and even a six pack of beer must be on the FDA approved list. To be specific, it’s the FDA’s Federal Regulations Title 21 Part 175.105 which governs any indirect food additives, including adhesives and coatings.

Food Packaging with Safe Adhesive ProductsThis regulation allows for food safe packaging adhesives to have minimal contact with food and also governs how adhesives should look and be identified.

Most of the white glues and hot melts from HAR Adhesive Technologies fit the bill because they are non-toxic and transparent.

The next time you’re about to open your favorite cereal, order a pack of fries, or peel that label off of your favorite beer, you know your safety has been assured—especially if the adhesive is from HAR Adhesive Technologies! For those who ever packaged any kind of food or beverage and aren’t sure about the FDA status of the adhesive you are using, give us a call and we can help and answer all of your questions.

Hmm I didn't know the glue that sealed these boxes needed to be approved by the FDA. It's pretty interesting thank you for sharing this with us.

Is there any truth to the claim circulating that reheating food in their packages using a microwave are harmful to our health because particles in the packaging supposedly get released during the heating and we end up ingesting them?

The custom printed lipstick boxes inform the customers about the type of lipstick, its shade and other information on its boxes that facilitate females to have a detailed knowledge about the product instead of getting it out of the box.

Games are full of fun. All the games can be easily downloaded from the play store. But there are few games for which we have to use the Google for searching. And I don’t know that if these games are there then why we are unable to download them from store?

The airport is the place where the people from the different countries arrive. So it is the first place to give off a good impression about the country. The Office Cleaning also writes a lot about the airports and its security because it is of prime importance.
