What is silica gel

Silica gel is a form of silicon dioxide, a naturally occurring mineral. It is a granular, porous material that absorbs moisture and is often used as a desiccant, or a substance that absorbs moisture to help keep products dry.

Silica gel is commonly found in small packets or sachets and is often included in packages with items that are sensitive to moisture, such as electronics, medications, and food products. The packets are labeled “Do not eat” because although the gel is nontoxic, it is not meant for consumption.

Silica gel can be regenerated, or made to absorb moisture again, by heating it to a high temperature. This makes it a reusable and environmentally friendly option for moisture control.
