What is Colloidal Silicon Dioxide?

What exactly is colloidal silica dioxide? A gaseous silica obtained by hydrolysis. It’s a form of fine silicon, which is easily dispersed. It can be insoluble in water. Silicon is a naturally occurring element on the periodic table. It’s nontoxic and often used in industries. It is the second most abundant element in the crust of the Earth after oxygen.

For what purpose is colloidal silicone dioxide used?

Food usage.

Colloidal silica can be found in foods. Because it acts as a loose-flowing agent, It can be found in salt, seasoning and baking salts. It can be found in many foods, including spices and meat pickling paste.

For medical use.

Uses Other Than

The thickener Colloidal Silica can be used in many industrial settings, including paints, dyes and cosmetics. The trade name for colloidal silica is “Cab-o-Sil”, which can be used to thicken industrial products.

Is colloidal silicon dioxide toxic?

FDA has confirmed that silica colloidal is generally safe. Many studies also show that silica ingested through food or supplements can be safely taken.

The body doesn’t accumulate it, according to research. According to the World Health Organization excess silicon dioxide is expelled through the kidneys. The researchers also discovered no link between excess silicon dioxide from food and increased organ damage, disease, or death.

Does silicon dioxide have any health benefits?

It naturally occurs in the earth, and also in human bodies. Silicon dioxide is safe to be used in foods as an additive. Inhaling silica may cause serious health problems.

Silica comes in many different forms. Different types of silicon dioxide are added to food, medicines and supplements. Silica dust inhaled is dangerous. Silica dust exposure can result in silicosis. In essence, silica has a crystal structure. You can inhale it to introduce the crystals to your lungs as nanoparticles. This creates tiny incisions within your lung tissue. It can cause scar tissue to form in your lungs over time. This makes it difficult for you to breathe.
