Lubricants to be used in the production, processing, packaging and distribution of food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, personal care products and any other ‘clean’ products may be registered as meeting certain criteria that make them safe for use in these industries. A lubricant qualifies as food grade when, in the event of contamination, it is present in no more than 10 milligrams per kilogram of the foodstuff in question. It must also not cause any physiological hazard or affect the food’s odour and taste in any way.
