It is undeniable that disposable tableware brings a lot of convenience to our daily diet, and people generally believe that disposable lunch boxes are economical and convenient, and even think that they can avoid cross-infection and reduce the growth of bacteria. In fact, because people generally use disposable lunch boxes. The bad habits of lunch boxes, the actual situation is not the case. Let’s take a look at the bad habits of inappropriate use of disposable lunch boxes with the disposable lunch box manufacturers.
Use foam disposable lunch boxes to hold hot dishes and hot soup. Foamed tableware is made of PS (polystyrene) plus foaming agent. Due to the relatively low price, many unscrupulous manufacturers will add recycled materials to the raw materials, which makes the lunch box inferior and it is toxic. , Can not directly touch the imported food.
If it is a qualified foam disposable lunch box produced by a regular disposable lunch box manufacturer, it can be used as a food tableware. However, the country has regulations that must be used below 70°C. But in reality, people often ignore this rule, and the foamed lunch box is directly used to hold hot dishes and hot soup. Experimental analysis proves that the foam disposable lunch box will deform when exposed to a high temperature of about 90°C and release styrene monomer. The higher the temperature, the more the release will be. Long-term use will damage the human liver and kidney function and the development of the fetus.
The food packaged in the disposable lunch box is stored directly in the refrigerator. I believe this is what most people do after packaging. They believe that there is no problem with keeping disposable lunch boxes in a refrigerator that is only a few degrees Celsius fresh. In fact, this is not the case. Everyone knows that if food is improperly stored in ordinary porcelain tableware, bacteria will grow if stored overnight, and it is not advisable to store food in a disposable lunch box for a long time. Therefore, the food packaged in the lunch box should be replaced with the tableware at home in time after returning home to minimize the contact time between the food and the disposable lunch box, and do not eat the soup in the disposable lunch box.
A disposable lunch box marked to be put into the microwave oven, and the lid is put into the microwave oven for heating. There are microwaveable lunch boxes produced by many manufacturers. The body of the box is made of microwaveable PP (polypropylene) material, and the lid is indeed ordinary PS (polystyrene) material. Therefore, before the food is heated in the microwave oven, the lunch box must be removed, otherwise, the poison released by the lid under high temperature will also contaminate the food.
Use disposable lunch boxes to instant noodles, brew cereals and other foods. This is actually the reason why lunch boxes should not store overheated food. Even if the hot water used to brew the food does not exceed the temperature of the lunch box, these foods should stay in the disposable lunch box for about half an hour. Although the high temperature is not released as quickly, but There will also be harmful substances slowly released.
One should still use disposable tableware as little as possible in life, and when one has to use disposable lunch boxes, we must carefully choose qualified lunch boxes, stay away from the above bad habits, and use disposable tableware rationally.
