silica gel and desiccant for food

To ensure that you're getting suitable silica gel and desiccants that is meant to be used with food items, the main thing that you need to know is that blue silica gels are injected with a chemical called cobalt chloride. This is the product that you should refrain from using when you want to use silica gels for food. As cobalt chloride may cause irritation to the skin, this product should be avoided at all cost. Instead, consider using white silica gels that are not impregnated with any additional indicating properties. Another safe alternative is also yellow (or sometimes referred to as orange) silica gels that is also non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-reactive. So remember this when selecting your product.
