What is difference for FDA and LFGB silicone product ?

Silicone products that meet FDA and LFGB standards both have excellent qualities of not affecting food taste, being non-toxic, and heat-resistant. However, there are some differences between the two standards:

1. FDA is the food-grade standard for the United States, while LFGB is the standard for Germany.

2. FDA has strict regulations on plasticizers, heavy metals, and other harmful substances that could be present in the silicone products. LFGB also has strict regulations but has more strict requirements when it comes to substances such as lead, cadmium, and mercury.

3. FDA requires food-grade silicones to be oven-safe up to 450°F (232°C) while LFGB requires a higher heat resistance, up to 450°F (232°C)
