How safe is using food-grade silicone in baking and high temperatures?
Silicone baking molds are microwave-safe, freezer-safe, and oven-safe. From 1979, the FDA deemed silicone safe to be used for cooking and everyday usage. Temperature changes will not cause food-grade silicone to leach into foods, despite common consumer concerns.
Silicone has low toxicity and high heat resistance. This makes it a wonderful compound for use in sealants for watertight containers like fish tanks as well as plumbing pipes. The food Grade Silicone material meets FDA and EU requirements for food contact and safety.
