So, what is teflon?

Teflon is a synthetic polymer material made of fluorine and carbon atoms, known for its non-stick properties. This versatile ingredient has a high melting point, making it ideal for use in cooking utensils, such as pots, pans, and baking sheets. Its non-reactive properties also make it a safe choice for food processing equipment, like conveyor belts and pipes. Beyond the kitchen, Teflon's durability and resistance to chemicals and extreme temperatures have led to its use in industries such as aerospace and electronics manufacturing. However, concerns about its potential health effects have arisen, leading to increased scrutiny and regulation of its use.
