ESPOO, Finland, Aug. 27, 2015 (Press Release) -Many packaged foods contain mineral oils, which are potentially unsafe for human consumption. Walki has developed Mineral Oil Safe Technology (MOST), an efficient extrusion coating that keeps mineral oil away from our food.
"Mineral oil contains Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbon (MOAH), which is especially harmful to humans because our systems can't break it down. It accumulates inside our bodies when we eat food that contains MOAH," says Mirka Nevala, Walki's VP for Business Development.
