My guess would be it is reagent grade to be used in chemical testing. My SN is rated similarly and was purchased from a chemical store for use in chemical testing, not for food use. It is my understanding this should work but I can't say with 100% assurance as I haven't tested mine yet.

I have only heard lab and food grade. Arccording to a quick seach, tech grade it somewhat impure, not meant for cosumption because too many impurities or precise reactions or meds, but is used to make other stuff. Most likely industrial use?

But I don't know how pure it is off that unfortunately. It still should be about 98% but no chemist is going to using it when regent grade exist. I think it's fine, just test it in case. (Edit)

Yep i guess it should work in their store description it says that it can be used for meat. Only one way, and one time to find out i guess

hmm but the seller stated in its product description that it is 99% purity. Is there a food grade with 99% and tech grade with 99% grade also?

There are 2 methods to test SN purity that don't involve consumption. One is the blood test which just requires adding a little bit of blood to the SN where it should change to a chocolatey brown color quickly. The other is using aquarium testing strips. There are multiple threads covering both methods. Here are a couple examples...

Yes it will work for you. I asked for food, technical and reagent grade and they told me that any would do. Just do the blood or aquarium test as mentioned to make sure.

I heard someone say Whether tech or lab or food or industrial grade it will work out....what matters is the purity
