Paper cups are one of the common drinking water supplies in everyday life. So, what do you need to know about drinking paper in your daily life?
Some people drink cold drinks in paper cups at fast food restaurants, and they will go for free refills of hot drinks. In fact, often doing so is harmful to human health, and may even cause poisoning.
Guangju tells us that paper cups are divided into cold drink cups and hot drink cups. They are “different” and once they are “misplaced,” they threaten the health of consumers.
The surface of a cold drink paper cup is subjected to waxing or waxing. The wax is very safe when it is between 0°C and 5°C. However, if it is used to hold hot drinks, the wax melts as long as the temperature of the water exceeds 62°C. Paper cups will absorb water. Molten paraffin contains high levels of impurities, especially organic compounds that are contained in the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. This is a potentially carcinogenic substance that can harm human health as it enters the body. The surface of the hot drinking paper cup will be affixed with a special film, which not only has good heat resistance but also is non-toxic and harmless.
Therefore, Guangju recommends that everyone classify paper cups. Do not use hot beverage cups for hot drinks, especially not in the microwave.
In addition, because paraffin melts easily in oil, do not use paraffin-coated cold drinks cups to hold oily foods. Paper cups should be stored in a ventilated, cool, dry, and non-contaminated space. The storage period should not exceed two years from the date of production.
