    About Our Butcher Paper

    What Is It?

    Butcher paper is a type of food-grade paper specifically designed for use in the meatpacking industry. It's an uncoated paper made with properties to prevent moisture from soaking through the sheet, making it ideal for wrapping meat and other food items, as well as for lining trays and tables in butcher shops, delis, and restaurants. It is also popular among crafters, artists, and teachers for its versatile uses, such as for drawing, painting, and covering surfaces. The butcher paper at Your Paper Source is sold in rolls and comes in a range of sizes and weights.

    What It's Good For

    Butcher paper is commonly used in the meat packing industry to wrap and package meat products. It's an uncoated grade of paper manufactured with properties that prevent blood and moisture from soaking through the sheet. Butcher paper is also used by restaurants and food trucks as a disposable table cover, and by barbecue enthusiasts for smoking meat due to its ability to withstand heat and retain moisture. In addition to its use in the food business, butcher paper is also used as a general-purpose wrapping paper in various industries such as for shipping, or as a protective layer during painting or construction work. Its versatility and durability make it a popular choice for many different applications.

    Is butcher paper the same as parchment paper?

    No, butcher paper is not the same as parchment paper. Although both are commonly used in the kitchen, they have different properties and uses. Butcher paper is a type of kraft paper that is uncoated and untreated, making it safe for contact with food which is why it's commonly used to wrap and store meat, as well as for smoking and barbecuing. Butcher paper is also a popular choice for arts and crafts, as it is sturdy and can be easily colored or painted. Parchment paper, on the other hand, is a non-stick paper that is coated with silicone. It's used primarily in baking to line baking sheets and prevent sticking, as well as for cooking en papillote (in parchment paper) to create a sealed, steamy environment for cooking.

    While both papers are versatile, butcher paper is best suited for wrapping and storing food, while parchment paper is ideal for cooking and baking.
