Also, is there a difference between food grade mineral oil and regular mineral oil?
Food grade mineral oil is recommended as a conditioner for cutting boards. The "other" mineral oil is used as an intestinal lubricant. It's about a third of the price of food grade, which is why I ask if it is the same and would be safe/adequate to use on my cutting boards.
Also, can you use any mineral oil on cutting boards? The oil you use for your wooden cutting boards and utensils should be food grade and not prone to rancidity. Mineral oil is an inexpensive and popular choice, and you can easily find bottles in most kitchen supply stores. Personally, I like to use a homemade mixture of beeswax and mineral oil, such as this one.
Similarly, what is a food grade mineral oil?
Not all mineral oil is food safe, mineral oil comes in multiple grades that is based on the refinement process. Our food grade mineral oil is safe for human use and is of an exceptionally refined grade that is colorless, odorless and has no taste.
What is equal to mineral oil?
They include castor oil, avocado oil and grapeseed oil. Beeswax is another good alternative as it creates a barrier on skin. Some excellent mineral oil alternatives include Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm Cream, $45, Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter, $35, and Lush Ultrabalm, $16.95.
