Grease or lubricant may get added in the food through cracks, leaks or untidy use during maintenance making them indirect food additives. This demands the use of food grade grease in the euipments involved in the manufacturing process. Selecting and using an appropriate food grade grease ensures a safe, smooth and efficient working of the plant all while avoiding toxicity, maintaining the health standards and increasing the profitability. In every geographical region, several government authorities like NSF, NHF, FDA, NAFDAC, CFIA, FSSAI, EFSA, MOH, FSANZ, etc. have strict regulations for the use of grease being a food grade grease. Every country has different standards

Every lubricant, including the food grade grease, should be able to provide sufficient lubrication for metal-metal surface separation along with the ability to perform in extreme temperature and pressure environments. Properties like anti-wear performance, high load carrying, good seal compatibility, oxidation stability, rust and corrosion inhibitors are also desirable from food grade greases. The food grade greases must resist the impurities such as steam, process water, high pressure cleaning and acidic conditions. Other chemicals and raw materials used in the course of manufacturing may also act as contaminants.

Food grade grease finds extensive use in the food, beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceutical sectors. Other areas where food grade grease finds a small but vital share includes packaging and logistics sector, equipment manufacturing and food grade lubricant blending to name a few.
