The Brew Bag Food Safe

 

Frequently we are asked if the material we use to make the bags is food safe. Every component of the the bags is made from 100% polyester - thread, strap, material. Above you'll see the results of the test on the entire bag - all materials passed. For competitive reasons we have blocked out the name of our manufacturer. 

Below are links to other sites that confirm the results of our test.

Polyester is the name of the fibre extruded from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a widely used synthetic fibre traditionally used in clothing and bedding. 

Polyester does not “leach” any chemicals and is food safe.

PET, which stands for polyethylene terephthalate, is a form of polyester (just like the clothing fabric). It is extruded or molded into plastic bottles and containers for packaging foods and beverages, personal care products, and many other consumer products.
