Waxed Paper

Wax paper, parchment paperClick to Enlarge
Wax paper roll used in baking

This paper dates back to the Middle Ages. Often referred as Paraffin Paper, this paper is made moisture proof through the application of wax directly on to the paper. Used throughout the baking industry in both commercial and residential kitchens. Its non-stick properties, its ability to wrap food for storage as well as keeping moisture out makes this a very popular paper. This paper can also show up in Specialty applications where a "slip" is needed or grease proof resistance.
