Are silicone muffin liners safe for gluten free?

Silicone muffin liners is an ideal option in gluten free kitchens. The flexible material and nonstick surface allows you to effortlessly slip gluten free baked goods from pans & baking tins, without breaking or splitting. If shared, gluten can leach into plastic, silicone, wood, and other porous materials. You’ll need to replace or have a second set of muffin liners to keep your gluten free baking truly free of gluten.

Silicone cupcake liners are an eco-friendly no brainer!

These red silicone baking cups are indispensable and versatile: Of course you can use them to bake cupcakes and muffins, but did you know they also work great for melting butter in the microwave?

They’re ideal for sticky, gooey desserts as the nonstick material releases cleanly.
