Parchment Paper

Parchment Paper Definition

Parchment paper is a paper that has been treated with sulfuric acid and coated with silicone. The sulfuric acid makes the paper’s surface smooth, resists grease and moisture, and tolerates high oven temperatures.

The silicone coating prevents foods from sticking.
