Tung Oil FAQ's

 

Tung Oil is a "non-edible nut" oil, and once it has cured it is considered inert.  This means that it won’t leach out of the wood and it cannot be re-liquified, thus it is considered to be food safe for contact exposure. The Tung Oil used by Sutherland Welles Ltd.® comes from nuts harvested from sustainable plantation grown Tung trees.  

 

Is Tung Oil safe for those with tree nut allergies?

Yes.
