Difference in paper between self-published and traditionally published books

Question??

I've noticed that self-published books are always printed on hospital white paper.

Books by traditional publishers are on cream or slightly tinted paper.

This seems to be true even if the self-published book has been thoughtfully edited

and is of high quality.

 

Any idea as to why?
