I run a small business and am making cocktail stirrers on the Glowforge (swizzle sticks), as a new product. We are using the Proofgrade acrylic sold on the Glowforge site, but can’t find any info if Proofgrade acrylic is food-safe???
General research seems to show that Acrylic is BPA free, but I can’t figure out if there is specific Food Grade acrylic or if all acrylic is food grade? Cocktail stirrers are left in drinks for an hour or two, so I need to know they are safe to use in drinks. Also curious about hot beverages… if the melting point is 266 F for acrylic it seems if it’s food-safe, it’s hot beverage safe.
Really need a SOLID answer on this, so I know if they are safe to sell.
