Subject:
Is Carnuba wax food safe?

Mike Rubes, Apex, NC
>Hi all,

Does anyone know if carnuba wax is an OK first finish for a salad bowl? I've got a maple bowl that I finished with mineral oil and then carnuba wax. I've got a friend who wants the bowl to use as a wet food safe bowl and I am not sure about the carnuba wax.

I figure wax is wax, but I thought someone here might know for sure.

Thanks,

Mike
