Sous Vide Tools launches BPA-free bags

Lancaster-based Sous Vide Tools, Europe’s leading sous vide equipment supplier, has launched a range of top quality BPA-free vacuum sealer bags.

The company says their boilable 80mu bags can be used with all makes of commercial chamber vacuum packing machines. They can be steam cooked, microwaved or boiled in a pan and can withstand cooking temperatures of up to 110°C, without risk of swelling or delamination, enduring cooking times of over one hundred hours. Sizes range from handy 110mm x 150mm to the extra-large 400m x 400mm pouches.

Both ranges are guaranteed free from Bisphenol-A (BPA), lead and phthalates, and are compliant with EU directive 2002/72/EC, meaning that they are food-safe, heat safe, and suitable for cooking, microwave, refrigerator or freezer.

Sous Vide Tools also supplies embossed vacuum sealer bags and rolls designed to work with all brands of suction vacuum sealers. The bags and rolls can also be used for storing food, creating an airless environment that prevents food from spoiling, extending its life by up to five times. The embossed bags range from 150mm x 250mm up to 400mm x 500mm for larger items, while two widths of embossed roll are also available for added flexibility.

Founded in 2011, the company also has a London shop in Connaught Village, Hyde Park. It is the leading authority on sous vide and has produced two cook books, a sous vide calculator, an APP and a training guide in conjunction with the Campden BRI, the UK’s leading provider of practical scientific, technical and advisory service.
