NM means non-metallic sheathed.

If you look at the end of the cable where the insulation is stripped away, UF cable is insulated conductors encased in solid plastic. NM cable as you know, has a paper wrapping around the insulated conductors.

Actually, the paper in NM is wrapped around the ground conductor only. The individually insulated hot and neutral conductors are not wrapped in paper.

Thank you for the correction John. We all want it to be correct.
