There is a new trend in the kitchen. Because of the increase in single-person households and the busy life of modern people, our food culture is also changing.
Home meal replacement (HMR), which can be warmed up or cooked easily, is rising in popularity.
Not only is it fast and convenient, but it also offers a wide variety such as soup, fried rice, and steak.
It's even delivered to your doorstep. No wonder more and more people are looking for it.
Plastic containers are mostly used to package HMR.
You can warm up the food thoroughly by heating the container in the microwave and enjoy a hot meal.
Microwavable plastic materials must be heat-resistant and safe.
The popular material for this is high-density polyethylene (HDPE). HDPE is a synthetic resin produced by polymerizing ethylene.
It is one of the most widely used general-purpose plastics.
Highly resistant to shock and has good frost resistance, it is used to make various containers and plastic boxes.
