Default Food-safe lubricants

I'm looking for recommendations of a food-safe, waterproof lubricant. The
intended use it to lubricate the paddle shaft of my bread machine.
Replacement pans are no longer available, so I disassembled the old pan to
find a thick grunge that causes the hard turning of the shaft. A quick
cleaning and the shaft turns easily, now I need something to lubricate it.
Since leaking around the seal is probably what caused the problem in the
first place, I'd like to use a waterproof lube.

Thanks

Howdy,

I would expect such to go rancid after a while...

Contact any restaurant supply company and they will have
just what the OP asked for.

I use mine for our flour mill.

All the best,

Right. I guess I was thinking about something that would be cleaned off and
replaced after each use, not in the machine itself.

That's food safe, really, Ed? Hmmm... Good to know.

Howdy,

With all respect, what makes you believe that to be food
safe?

The brand I use is "Petrol-Gel" and sources can be found at
http://tinyurl.com/57zm9. It is food safe.

All the best,

How about the fact that it's sold as food-grade?

Google "food grade silicone grease" or "usda approved silicone
grease" and you'll find tons of hits.

No, If I meant while silicone, I would have said white silicone. (it may
be, I don't know). What I do know is that white lithium is. Any grease with
an H-2 classification is acceptable for incidental food contact.

H2 lubricants are *not* approved for incidental food contact. Only H1
lubricants are. And the "H" codes are obsolete, anyhow:

http://www.fsis.usda.gov/OPPDE/rdad/..._guide_app.htm


Got it backwards. H-1 is incidental, H-2 for lubricating food machinery,
non contact. The link provided has a date of Sept. 2004. There is still a
lot of product and literature using the H classifications.
