Food silica gel is an inorganic polymer colloidal material made of silicic acid condensation, the main component is SiO2-nH2O, its content is above 98%, non-toxic and tasteless, stable chemical properties, in addition to caustic soda and hydrofluoric acid in the normal state, does not react with any acid and alkali salt.
Because it is a colloidal structure, it has many micropores and a large specific surface area.
The pore size of food-grade silicone is about 8-10nm, and the specific surface area is 300-500m2/g.
Moreover, the surface is hydrophilic and has a strong absorption ability to water, and its water absorption can reach more than 80%-100% of its own weight under high humidity.
Therefore, food-grade silica gel can be used as an external desiccant for food and medicine.
As edible silica gel is refined and sterilized, it can be mixed with food and drug according to the required amount to directly ensure the drying of food and consume it together with food without any toxic side effects to the human body.
Folded main features：
1. Non-toxic, odorless, high transparency, no yellowing;
2. Soft, good elasticity, twist resistance and no deformation;
3. No cracking, long service life, cold and high-temperature resistance;
4. Has higher tear strength and superior electrical properties;
It has the advantages of high transparency, tasteless, no yellowing, no frost spraying, etc.
It especially solves the problems of frost spraying for black hoses and fading for blue products, soft, high tear resistance, high insulation, wear resistance, high temperature resistance, flame retardant type, anti-aging, environmental protection, tensile type, stable performance, etc.

The Canadian government’s guidance is clearly more clear:
There are no known health hazards associated with the use of silicone cookware.
Silicone rubber does not react with food or beverages, nor does it produce any harmful fumes.
Although silicone baking mats are considered safe to bake, you still need to make sure to use them under the manufacturer's instructions.
Generally speaking, most silicone baking mats should not be used under broilers.
They are usually designed to withstand temperatures up to 450°F (232°C).
They are also not intended to be used directly in oven racks and toaster ovens.
Be sure to check the manufacturer's specifications for the particular mat you are buying.
When you have tried a clean, green, and simple lifestyle, the silicone baking mat makes sense.
They can prevent food from direct contact with non-stick and metal surfaces that may be unhealthy.
They don’t need oil and non-stick sprays.
Compared with disposable parchment paper, they are environmentally friendly, and, depending on what you are doing on them, the silicone baking mat can improve your baking effect.
Infull Cutlery recommends that you find the best silicone baking mat for your needs, this eco-friendly option has proven to be an inexpensive and convenient option so long lasting!
If you haven't used a silicone baking sheet mat, you'll be very glad you did.
