35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide is available in many concentrations, including industrial strengths (10% or higher). These industrial strengths, which are not intended for human consumption, include the so-called "food grade" hydrogen peroxide (35%). The term "food grade" (in the case of hydrogen peroxide) simply means that the product is appropriate for use in the preparation or storage of foods, such as herring, tripe, or dried eggs.
These higher strengths can be extremely dangerous, especially if they are not diluted appropriately. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), people should not purchase or use high-strength hydrogen peroxide products, including 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide, for medicinal use because they may cause serious harm or death.
Keep in mind that no grade or strength of hydrogen peroxide is intended to be taken by IV or swallowed, except in the trace amounts used in the preparation of certain foods.
