LFGB : The German abbreviation for the Food and Commodities Act – Lebensmittel- und Futtermittelgesetzbuch
FDA: Food and Drug Administration
LFGB and FDA are two main safety standards for silicone products. The difference between LFGB and FDA lies in the different way of testing methods, and LFGB is more comprehensive and more strict.
LFGB is standard mainly for Europe, while FDA is standard in America(though the different country has their own FDA standard, US FDA is internationally applied.)
One thing is for sure, silicone products that pass either one of these tests are SAFE for human use. In terms of pricing,  silicone raw material in LFGB standard will be more expensive than FDA standard,  so FDA is more widely used.
Please tell us in advance if you have special requirements for silicone raw material, and we will choose the right material accordingly. If you have trouble with material selection, our engineer team will give certain suggestions based on the application of silicone products and your target market.
