When did parchment paper lose its innocence?

rworange | Sep 14, 201108:56 AM     19

A topic about where to locally buy non coated parchment paper, had one poster asking "What do you mean un-coated? Parchment paper's fundamental definition is that it has a silicon coating"

What?

That was news to me. I just thought it was heavier, unwaxed baking paper. It turns out it not only can have silicone, it can have clorine or Quilon.

There seem to be some that don';t have all this junk.

Also, how do you tell what is in the parchement paper on the shelf? They don't seem to say on the box what is in them, only that they don't stick.

I don't use silicon cookware when I have the choice. I don't want paper with slicon in it.

Gratuitous link about the difference of different wrappers such as wax, parchment, foil that I just liked.
