Industrial-grade, FDA, NSF, and USDA-approved food-quality High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) boards are engineered to be low maintenance, safe and long lasting. Their textured surface provides a grip to hold food safely. Additional benefits include all of the following:
Chemical and corrosion resistance
High impact strength
Minimal moisture absorption
Excellent resistance to acids, alcohols and bases
Excellent long term durability
According to one report, Nonporous surfaces like plastic or glass are easier to clean than wood and thus better in terms of food safety. Wood is naturally porous, and those tiny fissures and grooves in wooden cutting boards can harbor bacteria. Which is why cutting boards made of wood aren't allowed in commercial kitchens.
