      What is the diffrence between food grade and not food grade. Like why can’t you use normal silicone to make a mold for food?

      Hi Christina,

      Each chemical that goes in to formulating resin, silicone, or other plastics has to be tested and tested again for curing properties, for safety and to make sure they don’t leech into food. Products that don’t have a ‘food safe’ designation have either not been tested or have been tested and not found to be safe for food contact.
