Waffle Wood Pulp Bread Proofing Baskets
Since 1920, the German companyBrotformen24.destart to produce wood pulp bread proofing baskets in Germany.
What is wood pulp?
The wood pulp used to produce these baskets is a natural product made from fresh spruce wood, which is free of any chemical additives and is produced locally in a purely physical way.
The fresh tree trunks, which come from sustainable forestry in Germany, are pressed against rotating stone rollers while being supplied with water. The wood structure is broken up and a fiber material is created from molecules of cellulose attached to one another. All other wood components, such as lignin, which is a natural wood adhesive, are retained.
You may recognize this by the light yellow-brown discoloration of the shape, as lignin is responsible for the yellowing caused by heat during drying or by sunlight. This yellowing is therefore not a defect but evidence of the natural state of the wood pulp used.
