What is food-safe resin?
When it comes to food safety, there are a few things to keep in mind with resin. First and foremost, while the resin itself is not toxic, it can contain impurities that can leach into food. This is why it’s important to only use food-safe resins, which are specially formulated to be free of impurities.
Second, because resin is not porous, it does not allow bacteria to grow. However, it is important to keep your work area clean and free of contaminants.
Finally, cured resin is not water soluble, so it is safe for use with food storage containers and utensils. However, uncured resin can be toxic if ingested, so it’s important to make sure your resin is fully cured before using it with food.

The FDA has not evaluated Craftsmart Resin for safety with regard to food contact. Therefore, we cannot recommend using it for anything where there will be direct or indirect contact with food. We also cannot recommend using it for any other application where human health and safety may be at risk.
