What is bagasse?

Throughout the catering and hotel industry, we have seen trends that make our operations more environmentally friendly. Driven by consumer demand, companies are now looking for alternative food packaging products.
One of the latest emerging trends is bagasse material, which is a very valuable renewable resource that is widely used in the production of disposable cups, plates, bowls and takeaway containers.
Bagasse, also known as sugarcane pulp, is a by-product of the sugarcane industry. Bagasse is the scum from the squeezing process of sugarcane sugar. It has a rough texture and accounts for about 24% to 27% of sugarcane (with water content of about 50%). For every ton of cane sugar produced, 2 to 3 tons are produced. Bagasse. Approximate analysis of wet bagasse shows that bagasse is rich in cellulose, but less lignin, so bagasse has great advantages as a fiber raw material. It is thick, pulpy and fibrous, and can be easily broken down and foamed into containers of any shape or size.
Now, bagasse is used to make environmentally friendly food service products, replacing traditional paper, plastic and styrofoam products. By adopting bagasse products, companies can indirectly help reduce pollution and energy consumption.
Bagasse is now widely used in the catering industry to replace disposable products made from pulp, fiber, petrochemical products and plastics. Throughout the industry, you will often find bagasse takeaway containers, bagasse trays, bagasse cups and other eco friendly products.
