Silica Gel - food safe packaging?

Recommended Posts

I have a load of silica gel sachets which I have picked up from work (they come in the print toner cartridges, I generally give them to my parents as they stick them in a container out in there post-retirement-crisis sports car to control excess moisture  during the winter when they're not using it much.

However, I was wondering if I could repackage it into anything I've got at home already to pop into my jars of homemade bbq rubs to stop them getting damp and all stuck together. Anyone got any bright ideas? I know they are pretty much cheap as chips to but from amazon etc but I've not paid anything for the gel I have at the moment and if there' something I might already have at home that I could use then I might as well save a few pennies where i can...

The gel I'm fairly sure would be fine it's what I could package it in that I'm wondering about. My intention would be to have a package of it stuck to the lid of the container so it wouldn't actually be in contact with the rubs.
