Why use food-grade silicone for your products? and what is food-grade silicone?
Silicone is a polymer which is made up of silicon, an element widely distributed in sand. Silicon is the second most abundant element, with only oxygen having greater abundance! After silicon goes through multiple heating treatments and is combined with hydrogen, carbon and oxygen, it becomes silicone. Food-grade silicone is inert and does not react with food/drinks.
