White oil is refined by ultra high pressure hydrotreatment and is stabilized with a Vitamin E oxidation inhibitor. Available in four viscosity grades: 70, 90, 220, and 350.
The regulations set by the U.S. FDA, such as 21 CFR 172.878 coincide with White Oils in order to approve the use in or on food for human consumption, as well as for the use as a component of nonfood articles intended for use in contact with food that meet the standards for human consumption, as Kosher with the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America.
The National Formulary (NF) or US Pharmacopeia (USP) consist of standards that are met by these white oils. As registered 3H and H1 lubricants, these oils are fortunately able to be utilized for direct and incidental food contact by NSF, or within food plants following the jurisdiction of the USDA.
