The use of lubricants in food production and processing is widely known. Over time, the regulations and requirements for lubricants in food machinery have evolved to include a wide variety of product technology. This technology includes many synthetic based formulated lubricants. This paper will focus on the types of lubricants available for use in the food industry, as well as the benefits and potential drawbacks of each lubricant type. It will also address the changing legislation surrounding the use of lubricants in food manufacturing and processing equipment.
