What are Food grade Gloves? Food grade gloves are certified under FDA Title 21 CFR Part 177, which states that the components of the glove must comply with the FDA regulations and consist of “Substances generally recognized as safe for use in food or food packaging. ”The key to food hygiene is the HACCP concept (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points), which follows the precautionary principle.
Wearing gloves when preparing RTE foods is critically important to reducing foodborne illness. “The spread of germs from the hands of food workers to food is an important cause of foodborne illness outbreaks in restaurants and accounts for 89% of outbreaks.”
Food-grade gloves contain materials that are generally considered safe for use with food and food packaging. Many types of gloves fit this description. Polyethylene, latex, vinyl, and nitrile are all appropriate materials for food prep gloves. This is good to know because these are the most popular glove materials on the market, so they should be pretty easy to find.
Food gloves are often referred to as multi-purpose gloves and are designed for short-term use that requires frequent replacement. As food good-grades must pass the food grade contact safety material test, they must have the relevant food grade certificate, such as the SGS company food-grade gloves test certificate. Testing institutions are also required to carry out tests by relevant national standards. Latex and nitrile food gloves shall comply with the requirements of "National Standard of Food Safety for Food Contact Rubber Materials and Products", while PVC and PE food gloves shall comply with the requirements of "National Standard of Food Safety for Food Contact Plastic Materials and Products".
