Research shows that food grade silicone does not react with food. It doesn’t produce any hazardous fumes. Silicone is not toxic to aquatic or soil organisms. And it can be recycled after a lifetime of use.
However, do make sure you choose products made from 100% pure food grade silicone. Cheaper brands often use plastic fillers. These fillers can compromise the quality and durability of the silicone. All Belgoods Bakeware products are made from 100% pure food grade silicone.
Now, how can you test if a muffin pan is made of 100% pure food grade silicone? Well, just do the pinch and twist test. Twist a bit of the silicone, if it turns whitisch, it’s got plastic fillers.
Pure silicone will retain its color.
