Choose unbleached paper products to use in cooking and baking in your kitchen. Many white paper kitchen materials are bleached using chlorine, which has chemicals that can leach into your food. Instead of taking the risk on whether or not a bleached product is safe, opt for unbleached. Products like parchment paper, coffee filters and paper towels all have unbleached (brown-colored) alternatives you can find easily at almost any supermarket. The cost is comparable, and the unbleached products are just as effective as the bleached ones.
