Mineral Oil Drakeol®
This substance is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. Drakeol is a viscous material that is utilized as a form of lubrication. Because this oil comes into contact with food on a constant basis, it is highly refined and is one of the purest forms of mineral oil on the market. Also, that means that this chemical is safe and nontoxic to humans.
The primary application for Drakeol is in use with bakery equipment. Automated machines that work with various kinds of dough require this mineral oil to stay lubricated. Also, the oil helps ensure that the dough will not stick to the sides of the machines, helping keep the whole operation running smoothly.
There are no known toxic side effects of Drakeol exposure. Because it is utilized in food applications, it will not be harmful if swallowed or if it touches the skin. It should be stored in a cool, dry area, and it should be in an airtight container to keep it from drying out.
