What we cook our food in is essential for overall health and wellness, but did you know that what you store your food in is also important? Many food storage containers and bags leech harmful chemicals which can have lasting health effects. Switching to non toxic options is an excellent way to create a healthier kitchen and support your overall wellness.

They are dishwasher, microwave, fridge and freezer friendly! These non toxic kitchen essentials can help you save money, reduce environmental waste, and encourage better health.
What is Silicone Made of?
Silicone is a safe material that can interact with food without harm. Silicone is made from sand, quartz, and oxygen atoms combined with carbon and hydrogen. Xtrema uses the highest grade of silicone, "Platinum Silicone."
What is Platinum Silicone?
There are various grades of silicone, including standard silicone, food grade, and medical grade. Xtrema uses a medical-grade silicone cured with platinum for a non toxic product you can feel safe using with your foods. Standard and food grade silicones are cured with peroxide. While curing with peroxide is cost-effective, it requires fillers, and the final product can contain byproducts like plastic. Xtrema does not cut corners when providing its customers with the safest non toxic kitchen essentials. Using Platinum Silicone provides a cleaner silicone without fillers or byproducts. The result is healthy food storage that is durable, versatile, and eco-friendly.
Xtrema 100% Pure Platinum Silicone is Tested and Certified
Xtrema FridgeX and Storits have certifications from the LFGB and FDA and conform to FDA and EU food grade standards. The LFGB is the most comprehensive and strict certification worldwide that tests silicone resin to ensure it cannot transfer to food. Xtrema only uses LFBG certified silicone. When purchasing Xtrema non toxic containers and bags, you can rest assured you are getting the highest quality silicone products.
Benefits of Switching to Xtrema Pure Platinum Silicone Safety
Many food storage containers are made with harmful materials that can leech into food. Plastic food storage containers and bags can contain BPA, BPS, and phthalates contributing to endocrine disruption, while glass can be bulky and unsafe for children. On the other hand, platinum silicone is plastic-free, BPA-free, safe for young children, safe for cooking and freezing, and saves space. FridgeX and Storits can be used safely with foods, crafts, baby supplies, and more.
Foods Stay Fresh
Have you ever gone into the cupboards or refrigerator to get a snack only to find all the packages half open, spilling, and stale? That can be pretty frustrating, especially when you are hungry. Instead of relying on rubber bands, food saver clips, and flimsy containers, a better way to optimize the freshness of your foods is to keep them in non toxic food storage containers such as Storits and FridgeX. The secure seal will keep all your foods fresh.

What about Plastic Food Storage Containers?
The main concerns associated with plastic food storage containers are BPA, BPS, BPF, and Phtlattaes. Biphenol-A (BPA) is a classified endocrine-disrupting chemical contributing to health issues such as infertility, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. As more people become aware of the health concerns associated with BPA, manufacturers have created "BPA-A free" products; however, the alternative used is not necessarily safer. Replacing one toxicant with another does not address the issue. BPA was replaced with Biphenol-S (BPS) and Biphenol-F (BPF), which have a very similar structure and may even be worse. Storing leftovers in these food containers can lead to toxins leeching, especially when heated or used with acidic foods. Another concern with plastic products is the contamination of phthalates. For this reason, plastic is not the best option for storing food, heating the environment, or for children.
What About Glass Food Storage Containers?
Glass food storage containers can be a good option that is durable and versatile. However, they may not be safe for young children because they can break and toddlers can chip their teeth. Glass is also not allowed in some schools. Glass containers are also heavier and take up more space which can make it difficult to pack in lunch boxes, bags, and for outings. Unlike Storits and Fridgex, which are multipurpose, non toxic, and safe.
Whether you’re looking to pack meals, snacks, or organize, Xtrema Platinum Silicone storage bags and containers are the healthy and durable choice. With Xtrema you can rest assured that you are purchasing the best non toxic storage products for your family.
