To protect food from potential contamination by mineral oils, Ahlstrom-Munksjö developed Gerstar Mo, a one-side coated paper with an excellent mineral oil barrier (MOSH-MOAH*).

This speciality paper can be used to produce primary packaging that prevents mineral oil migration into dry and non-fatty food for maximum consumer safety.Gerstar  Mo is especially suited for packaging used to protect dry foods such as biscuits, semolina, cereals, pasta, dehydrated desserts, crisp breads, etc.

*MOSH-MOAH: Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons – Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons. Mineral oil barrier above 95% for the test conditions applied during the migration test performed by the Centre Technique du Papier in France.
