WHAT IS
SILICON DIOXIDE
AND WHY DO WE
USE IT?



WHY DO SOME Skinny SciencePRODUCTS CONTAIN SILICON DIOXIDE?

Silicon Dioxide is used in Nuvo Gene Tea™ and other Skinny Science® products in very small amounts as an anti-caking agent.

Silicon Dioxide keeps ingredients from getting too sticky, and helps protect products from absorbing moisture.

Natural ingredients found in Skinny Science® products, such as B-Sweet are hygroscopic, meaning they absorb water from the air, which causes caking.

Silicon Dioxide helps prevent B-Sweet and other Skinny Science products from caking-up.

WHAT IS SILICON DIOXIDE?

Silicon is an element found naturally in foods in the form of silicon dioxide (SiO2), and is an indispensable part of the food we eat daily.

Silicon is never present in its original or free form, and thus, it commonly occurs as silicon dioxide (silica).

Silicon dioxide is found in higher amounts in plant based foods. In cereal, the SiO2 content is very high. Levels of SiO2 are comparatively less in foods that are derived from animal sources.

Natural foods contain various amounts of SiO2, for example:

Potatoes
10.1
Milk
2.1
Drinking-water
7.1
Mineral-water
22.5


Along with calcium and vitamins, Silicon Dioxide is equally important for proper bone growth, strength and density. Deficiency of silicon can cause osteoarthritis and arthritis.

Natural fruits contain significant levels of Silicon Dioxide, as silicon occurs naturally in fruits. Fruits considered high in silicon include apples, oranges, cherries, grapes, plums, and raisins.

Vegetables also contain silicon, especially green veggies, such as beans and peas, cucumber, and celery.

Whole grains and nuts (highest levels are found in peanuts and almonds) contain considerable amounts of silicon, as do raw oats, barley, and rice.

Clean, natural drinking water also contains Silicon Dioxide (silicic acid).

LEGAL STATUS PER FDA

Silicon Dioxide is a naturally occurring form of the mineral silica and holds GRAS status from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

Silicon Dioxide is listed on the FDA Code of Federal Regulations 21CFR172.480, as a legal and safe ingredient.
