There are different types of greaseproof papers in the market that may look the same but actually are totally different products. Some examples of those include:
Butter paper (sometimes called as sandwich paper) does not have a non-stick surface, so it should not be used for baking. Instead it is ideal e.g. for protecting the chopping board when preparing for instance fish, raw meat, onion, chili or beetroot, or for packaging and wrapping fatty and moist food for instance when going for a picnic.
Waxed paper (or wax paper) actually has wax on it, and it has a non-stick and water resistant surface. However, it is not heat-resistant and should not be used in the oven. NOTE: Baking paper can be used in most applications that call for wax paper. However, the reverse is not true, as using wax paper may cause smoke in the oven and affect taste.
Baking paper – also known as bakery paper or parchment paper, as it is often called especially in the US – is greaseproof paper that is used for baking and cooking. Baking paper is the multi-purpose kitchen helper that can be used for several different applications. It has a non-stick surface which prevents food from sticking. They are also highly heat-resistant and can be used in temperatures up to 220°C.
SAGA baking paper is a unique innovation and contains more properties than traditional baking paper.
