What Is Food-Grade Silicone?

AVOCADA’s reusable bags are made of food-grade silicone, but what is food-grade silicone and why is it better than plastic?

Single-Use Plastics
Single-use plastics are made for convenience but aren’t good for you and our planet. In the United States alone, 100 billion plastic bags are used per year and only 1% are getting recycled. Plastic ends up in landfills and oceans and it takes more than 500 years to break it down. What many people don’t know is that plastic contains chemicals and toxins such as BPA, BPS, and PVC which can be detrimental for your health as it can lead to cancer and immune disorders.

Food-Grade Silicone
AVOCADA’s reusable storage bags are made of food-grade silicone. Food-grade silicone does not contain BPA, BPS, PVS, or any other toxic chemicals or fillers which makes it safe to use for food. You can store your food and even put the bags in the freezer, refrigerator, oven, and microwave and use them for sous-vide cooking. You can endlessly reuse AVOCADA’s storage bags by cleaning them in the dishwasher or washing the bags by hand with water and soap. The bags don’t leak, break down or degrade.

This is why food-grade silicone is better for you and our beautiful planet. We will be honest, replacing single-use plastics alone won’t save our planet, but if we all make small changes, we can make a big impact. One AVOCADA bag, which you can endlessly reuse, can replace hundreds or even thousands of single-use plastics entering our oceans and landfills and it can prevent toxic chemicals from getting into your body.
