The microwavable pouch is a convenient food packaging solution that allows heating food products in the microwave without opening the package beforehand. Unlike the retort pouch, it doesn’t contain an aluminium layer as a protective barrier against electric sparks. Instead, it uses a unique polyester film coated with Alumina (AIOx), similar to aluminium layers.
Preserving Moisture and Preventing Mess
One of the standout features of the microwavable pouch is its self-venting design. Traditionally, microwavable pouches had to be opened during heating to prevent food explosions. However, this led to a loss of moisture, altered taste and food splattering in the microwave.
This microwavable pouch eliminates the need for openings before heating, preserving the food’s moisture and preventing mess. The steam inside the pouch cooks the food, providing a convenient and hassle-free solution.
Leak-Proof and Odor-Proof
The bottom of the pouch expands to allow it to stand upright when filled, which prevents the bag from toppling over and ensures that the food composition remains intact for easy consumption. The flexible packaging is also leak- and odour-proof, keeping the food fresh.
The self-venting microwavable pouches are suitable for meals, sauces and frozen foods and can be used at home or in retail. Furthermore, the outer layer of the pouch allows for graphic printing to showcase its brand and provide product information. Microwavable pouches offer a convenient and user-friendly option for reheating food in the microwave, ensuring freshness and minimising mess.
