Use Of Silica Gel For Food?
Afternoon, is silica gel that makes the same food that likes electronics / plastic and shoes the same? Can we use the ones from thermos / plastic water bottles for jars filled with food? thanks….
Silica gel is an ingredient that can be used to keep certain products dry so they don't get damaged easily. There are several types of silica gel, some are safe to use for food, some cannot be used for food and only for non-food products.
If you want to use silica gel for dry food, you can choose silica gel that is safe for food or has a food grade category. You can ask the type of silica gel that is safe for food from the silica gel manufacturer concerned.
If there is silica gel in food, you should be careful and ensure that the silica gel is not eaten. Ingested silica gel can cause irritation and discomfort in the gastrointestinal tract.
Hope this helps,
