I was researching desiccants to keep my sugar candies dry and found a product called DampRid commonly stocked in grocery stores. I didn't want a desiccant for food contact, just something to keep the containers that they were stored in dry. I emailed them to see if it was safe to use around food. Here is their response:


Yes, DampRid can be used around food as long as it doesn't come into contact with the food.

In my local grocery store, this item was just a couple bucks. I will be trying it with some pulled sugar candy soon. I've seen a few people on the forums mention that they use it for gumpaste work storage, but I wasn't sure if people actually ate these items. Hope this helps someone!
