    Thank you for being here. The site is really very helpful.

    I’m following a vegan recipe for making a vital wheat gluten bacon slag (roast shape for slicing).

    The method calls for wrapping in dough in parchment paper followed by 2 layers of plastic wrap pulled tightly around the dough.

    Is it safe for pressure cooking in an Instant Pot … not to mention the people who will be eating the finished faux bacon?

    According to this article, plastic wrap will not melt until it reaches 250°F. Plus, when it’s not in direct contact with the food there is little danger of any “baddies” being transferred to the edible part – HOWEVER, the article also says that no manufacturers say their plastic wrap is “oven safe”.

    So, use your best judgment. Personally, I would not do it. There must be another way to shape the wheat gluten loaf.

    Any readers care to share an idea?

    Ciao,

    P.S. Here is the article I’m referring to…
