Food-Grade Acetate Supplier for Stencils

Does anyone know of a good food grade stencil material supplier. I have been doing research on the Internet for days and come up with conflicting reports on what is considered food grade. I contacted the Grafix Company and they said that only their acetate is considered food grade, (comes in tablet form on Amazon) but some people say that this material is not acceptable for stencils. Some culinary stencil sites say that they use food grade plastic or food grade Mylar, but I can't seem to find a supplier or source for these materials. Can anyone offer advice on how or where to proceed?

I think you also need to consider your process and how you cut the stencils if calling a stencil food grade. I know that Designer Stencils cleans its cutting machinery/stencils in such a way that no harmful materials get on/remain on the stencils.

 

Global Sugar Art and Country Kitchen Sweet Art sell food-grade acetate in different forms. Perhaps you can check out those brands and place calls to them to determine how they qualify themselves as food grade? What materials and processes do they use? Who certifies this designation - themselves or some external, independent body? Going directly to the source is probably going to tell you a lot.

Julia,
Thank you for your advice. I did check out the sites you mentioned and decided to try the Grafix brand acetate because all of their acetate is deemed food safe. I found out from the people at Grafix that not all acetate is food safe. Some stencil sites get their acetate from China, and I'm not entirely certain what their "food safe" standards are.
