I understand that but I read this as its butchers paper that's been coated with sizing to help retain moisture. I'm trying to find out if sizing holds up under heat and make sure it isn't off gassing some harmful chemical as it breaks down. Everything I've seen says butchers paper should be all natural and in my head if its been treated its no longer all natural. I'm sure its fine just trying to get a definite answer that sizing won't contaminate food under heat.
