I know it's pretty safe (even recommended) to store food in cabinets that have silica gel packs. I'm wondering if it is safe (and a good idea) to put the sealed silica gel packets directly into the food.
So if I'm storing a spice mix, can I just drop a sealed pack of silica gel in the jar along with the spice mix?
I also read about non-toxic indicating silica gel beads. I'm also wondering if those could be used in this way.
Is there a better way to do this?
