Frequently Asked Questions
No, we would not recommend it, as it has never been tested for this use.
Either side of the foil can be used to place food on, unless you are using Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil, then the food should be placed on the non shiny side side, as this is the side that is coated with a food safe silicon to stop food from sticking.
Baking paper is siliconized on both sides of the paper, which stops food from sticking, making it ideal for cooking & baking. Greaseproof Paper is not siliconized, so if you intend on cooking with it, coat it well with oil to ensure that food does not stick. We recommend that Greaseproof paper is used for wrapping, presenting & storing.
