Butcher paper and peach treated paper have a coating called sizing which gives them leak resistance and wet strength. Our 24",30", and 36" rolls of butcher paper are untreated, because they are not often used for meat wrapping (they're often used for crafts or for table covers). Freezer paper has an interior coating of polyethyene. This gives the paper strength, leak resistance, and prevents freezer burn for up to a year!
Can I Write on This Paper?
You can write with sharpie, pen, pencil, or crayon on any of these papers. However, you can only write on the outside of the freezer paper, due to the poly coating.
Are There Peaches in Peach Treated Paper (alt. What is Peach Treated Paper)?
There are no peaches in peach treated paper. Much like butcher paper, peach treated paper is coated with sizing for wet strength and leak resistance. But unlike other papers, peach treat paper allows the meat to breathe, allowing it to maintain an attractive color. Also, the darker color hides any juices that happen to leak. You should not freezer in peach treated paper (or butcher paper) unless you first wrap the product in plastic
I think that this is getting over thought just a bit. The above highlighted in red should answer the question of what size to buy and also take care of the concern about using treated paper.
