Everything you want to know about Biopackaging  

Biopackaging is not a new concept. It was used widely in human daily life. Maybe you’ve used it before but you don’t know more information about it. What is its composition? How to recognize and where to buy at a good price in Ho Chi Minh City? The article below will show you.  

1/ The concept of Biopackaging


Biopackaging is often referred to as eco-friendly packaging. It is a kind of packaging made from natural materials such as cornstarch, wheat flour,… Under the influence of microorganisms in the natural environment, they transform into simple organic substances, easy to dissolve or even decompose into carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O). Most biopackaging is capable of rapidly degrading within 1 – 3 years depending on the amount of biodegradation added. Using biodegradable packaging contributes to reducing the amount of packaging waste that lasts for a long time in the environment, making the environment cleaner and more beautiful.  

 Biopackaging has the following characteristics:

  • Waterproofness
  • Optical properties
  • Elasticity. 
  • Can be stamped and printed easily.
  • Heat and chemical resistance
  • Stable, eco-friendly and competitively priced. 
  • Moreover, the packaging must conform to regulations on food packaging. The interaction between packaging and food must ensure food quality and safety. 

2/ How to distinguish biopackaging from the others? 


To identify biodegradable bags you can rely on external characteristics or perform a few small tests: 

  • You can find the biodegradable bags are pretty brittle  when you touch them. They are often white or transparent.   
  • We can determine if the products of biodegradation are toxic by burning them. If it is flammable and does not smoke, the product is less toxic. On the contrary, if it is toxic, the bag is difficult to burn, burn without foaming, but it gives off smoke and has a strange smell. 

3/ The benefits of using biopackaging   

  • Safe for health  

Using biodegradable bags that do not contain microplastics, so when storing hot and cold foods, chemicals are not contaminated with food, so it is very safe for health.

  • Friendly and environmental protection  


By choosing to use biodegradable packaging, you have contributed to reducing the amount of plastic waste in the environment. With the ability to decompose in a short time, biodegradable packaging waste is easy to handle. After using, you just bury them in the ground and they will be decomposed by natural elements in the soil. Moreover, the decomposition process of biodegradable packaging does not produce any harmful substances for the environment.

  • High applicability 

Biopackaging is widely used in packaging food, pharmaceuticals,…You can find it is used a lot in restaurants, supermarkets, grocery stores, etc… 

Instead of using plastic packaging, you should use more biopackaging. It has the same characteristics as ordinary plastic packaging, easy to use for many purposes. And it is also a way to contribute to environmental protection. However, biodegradable packaging is expensive and requires high technology to produce. 

4/ Instructions for preserving biopackaging  


The main factors affecting the biodegradation process are sunlight, humidity, temperature, microorganisms, and the content of biodegradable substances. Therefore, to preserve the biodegradable bags well, we should keep them in a dry, airy place, away from direct sunlight, not moldy, and at an average temperature of 28-38oC.
