Does dough absorb wood board oil ?
« on: April 15, 2019, 09:34:22 AM »
Hello,

I'm just wandering if this kind of wood oil can actually go into my dough when I manually knead it on my wood board.

It does not seem to be organic oil or anything so I'm a little worried as I knead everything by hand.

Thanks a lot,

Johnny

Une huile V33 peut-elle être appliquée sur une planche à découper afin de la protéger?

Non, il n’est pas possible de protéger une planche à découper ou un billot en bois.

Doesn't sound like V33 oil should be used on items used for food prep.

Put some dry flour on an oiled board, and you'll see the flour start to cake up as it sucks out the oil.

If you are looking for an oil to use to seal a wood work surface look no further than plain old white mineral oil.
You flood the surface with it, allow it to soak in a few hours and then wipe off any remaining oil and burnish the surface with a clean dry towel. Periodically clean the surface by using a metal blade bench scraper.

What Tom said and I do an added step and heat the oil before using. May take several applications, 5 or 6, keep doing it til the wood gives up and won't soak up anymore. Heavy use, repeat as needed! Here's a good read, lots of them!
