Hi, I am new to the forum and hope you can help me! I make home-made peanut brittle and that type of hard candy is hydrographic (???) meaning it absorbs moisture from the air, and as it does, it turns STICKY. I want to sell my candy this year at the farmer's market, but I'm concerned about it turning sticky (even though I'm sealing it in a bag). The best solution I can come up with is to put one of those DO NOT EAT dessiccant packs in the bag of brittle, but I can't find anything on the internet about thier use with edible products.
- Is it safe? (I did find some candy and cookie companies on the internet that ship their products with them in the packaging, but I can't find something definite that says they are safe to have around food.)
- Where do i buy them?? I want to make sure they are printed with DO NOT EAT. (I buy a lot of shoes, but not enough to collect enough of those little packs from the boxes..... ) I have searched the internet and can find some sites selling dessiccant packs, but they seem very "industrially" oriented--nothing that seems geared to food.
- Does anyone have any experience using them with food/candy?
Thank you so much for your expert advice!!!!!!
