So, what is tin oxide?

Tin oxide, also known as stannic oxide or tin dioxide, is a compound made from tin and oxygen. This fine, white powder is commonly used in the food industry as an anti-caking agent to prevent clumping of powdered ingredients. It is tasteless, odorless, and non-toxic, making it safe for consumption. Tin oxide can also be found in some toothpastes and cosmetics due to its abrasive properties which aid in removing stains and impurities. While considered safe for use, excessive consumption of tin may lead to health concerns such as gastrointestinal issues, so it is important to consume it in moderation.
