What is food-grade silicone?

Silicone is a rubber-like material that starts out as a pure form of very fine grain sand. Through a series of heat treatment and processing, the silicone base material is formed. This material meets all US FDA and Europen LFGB regulations for food contact safety. The silicone base is then colored and molded into bakeware shapes. The result of this molding process is a finished piece of Webake silicone bakeware. Food-grade silicone does not react with food. It doesn't produce any hazardous fumes. Silicone is not toxic and safe to use in kitchen. And it is reusable after a lifetime of use.

What is a pinch test?

Cheaper brands often use plastic fillers, so it is not safe for high-temperature baking. Pinch and twist a bit of the silicone, if it turns white, it’s got fillers. Solid silicone will retain its color. Webake’s products are made from 100% pure, food-grade silicone that meets US FDA and European LFGB safety standards. They are also BPA, PVC & Phthalate FREE.
