Question: Is it safe to consume silicon dioxide?

Silicon dioxide exists naturally within the earth and our bodies. There isnt yet evidence to suggest its dangerous to ingest as a food additive, but more research is needed on what role it plays in the body. Chronic inhalation of silica dust can lead to lung disease.

Is silica safe to ingest?

According to the United States Department of Labor, about 2.3 million people in the U.S. are exposed to silica at work. As long as you arent inhaling silica in its crystalline form, it appears to be safe to consume at the levels set out by the FDA.
