Simply bake, allow your loaf to cool, slice and freeze in your reusable bread
Onya Bread Bag is big, measuring 41cm long x 27.5cm wide plus
a 10cm gussett, to allow even high top loaves up to 16cm high to fit.
The Bread Bags have been made to Australian Bakers Industry
Standards and the bag dimensions have been modelled off the size of single use
plastic bags normally given out at bakeries. So they are designed to fit over
most of the machines bakeries use when slicing the bread.
Due to the unique roll and clip closure, you can simply roll
down the closure as the loaf is eaten to ensure maximum freshness is maintained
by reducing air movement around the bread.
Bread stored in one of bread bags can last up to 3
months in a frost free freezer and will not sustain freezer burn due to the
unique double lining and airtight roll and lock closure.
To clean, you can just pull out the inner lining to dispose
of any crumbs and reuse again. You don’t necessarily have to wash it every
time, but if you want to, a luke warm hand wash is all that is necessary. We
recommend handwashing only, as the metal buckles may get damaged or do damage
to the interior of a washing machine.
Hot Tip: Most fresh
bread purchased at a bakery or made at home is preservative free meaning that
your loaf will likely only last 2-3 days stored on your bench top before going
stale. To preserve your bread for longer
it is best to freeze your bread when it is cool but fresh.
Ideally, fresh bread should never be stored in the fridge as
this more moist environment can encourage bacteria to form along the surface of
the bread forming mold.
Please note: The goal for our reusable bread bags is to be
able help people to reduce single use plastic waste when purchasing bread from
the baker, not to make bread last longer on the bench top.
Although made from recycled plastic drink bottles and
technically plastic, the rPET material that makes our bags is woven in nature
not solid state plastic like a single use plastic bread bag which is
non-permeable for air and water.
Because of the woven nature of the fabric, a solid state
plastic bag will definitely prevent air from reaching the loaf better than our
bread bags will when storing your bread on the bench top, which is why we
mention that bread will only really last 2-3 days on the bench top, and will
likely only be suitable for toast after the first 24hrs. As mentioned above
however, our bags are Freezer Proof and store your bread really well when
frozen from fresh for up to 3 months without freezer burn in a frost free freezer.
A note on our packaging: Our commitment to sustainability
extends to our packaging which is made from post-consumer recycled material and
printed with water based inks so it is suitable for both recycling or
Manufacturers such as Onya are making a positive difference
by offering alternatives to cut back on plastic waste, finding ways to
repurpose the plastic that already exists, and creating multi-use products that
are reusable for many years.
By ensuring we make products that give complete satisfaction
in every sense, we have achieved a significant goal in helping to reverse the
impact of waste, as well as raising awareness of the problems surrounding
single use plastics.
