What Disposable Gloves Should You Use in Food Service?

When it comes to food service, you can’t just use any type of disposable glove. For example, vinyl doesn’t work the same as a nitrile glove in a food setting. Around 3 million people in the United Stated have a latex allergy, according to the American Latex Allergy Association, so it wouldn’t make sense to use latex gloves when handling food. So, what type of disposable gloves should you use when preparing food?

Pros and Cons of Different Types of Disposable Food Service Gloves 

Nitrile gloves:

  • Create a better barrier for protection.
  • Can be used by those with a latex allergy.
  • Offer more puncture resistance than other materials.
  • Offer a greater chemical resistance over other gloves.
  • Have superior strength.
  • Are Waterproof.
  • Are durable.

Vinyl gloves:

  • Are best used by fast food workers.
  • Should be worn less than two hours at a time.
  • Are good for tasks that need more fingertip sensitivity.
  • Are durable.

Polyethylene gloves:

  • Are good to use if you change gloves often.
  • Are good to use if you don’t need a lot of dexterity.
  • Should only be used for single use.

Latex gloves:

  • Can give a lot of people an allergic reaction.

Besides latex gloves, nitrile, vinyl, and polyethylene gloves are the best for food handling. Overall, nitrile gloves are the overall winner when it comes to a long-lasting, durable glove with food. If you plan to use these gloves for a long time, nitrile is your best bet. Second, we’d recommend the polyethylene gloves followed by the vinyl as a third choice.
