The paper is free of dyes, adhesive, and glue, and is oxygen-bleached (no chlorine used), therefore eliminating dioxins. Compliant for all food standards, including organic. Non-GMO and free of allergens and epichlorohydrin. To fill and seal: Separate along perforations, fill with desired ingredients, and press the open edges closed using an ordinary iron on the cotton setting.
