Why we made Funtoos Hoop from Silicone?
Silicone, not to be confused with silicon (a naturally occurring substance and the second most abundant element on Earth after oxygen) is a man made polymer created by adding carbon and/or oxygen to silicon.
The FDA has approved it, “as a food-safe substance” and it can now be found in numerous baby bottle nipples, plates, sippy cups, baking dishes, kitchen utensils, mats and even toys.
Food-grade silicone is a non-toxic polymer mostly made from silica (sand). This means it can withstand heating and freezing without leaching hazardous chemicals – unlike plastics, which contaminate food in these environments.
