This soft, flexible tubing is odorless, tasteless, and inert and is suitable for air, water, food, and beverage applications. It is made of silicone rubber which is nonreactive, flexible, and resistant to high temperatures. Silicone is resistant to ozone, weather, detergent, salt water, engine and transmission oil, non-petroleum brake fluid, hydraulic fluids that resist fire, vegetable and animal oils, and high molecular weight chlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons. It has a Shore A Hardness rating of 50 for flexibility, and it is translucent for visual inspection of fluids. It has an operating temperature range of -150 to +500 degrees F and is sterilizable with steam or gas for repeated use. This white tubing meets National Sanitation Foundation NSF-51 standards for food equipment material. Standard barbed fittings and lined hose clamps are recommended for most applications.
Plastic tubing is used to transfer liquids, air, or solids, and it is characterized by a round, rectangular, or square shape and a hollow center. Plastic tubing is crimp-resistant and varies in bend radius (flexibility), chemical resistance, wall thickness, durometer hardness, and temperature and pressure handling abilities. The clarity of plastic tubing may be transparent (clear), translucent (semi-clear), or opaque (solid), and the tubing's coloring may indicate suitable applications. Barbed fittings are used to connect tubing or redirect flow in a fluid handling system. Plastic tubing is used in a wide variety of industries, such as agriculture, automotive, laboratory, and medicine. Applications for plastic tubing include blood and fluid handling, peristaltic pumps, electrical and thermal insulation, analytical systems, and food and beverage handling, among others.

One other word of warning: Let them dry out completely after use and don't store them in a tightly enclosed environment. I made the mistake of storing them inside a pot with the lid on it while still slightly wet, and found them a week later full of mildew inside and out. I boiled them immediately after discovery, but they are stained from the experience and I'm now afraid to use them for any sanitary purposes. I've never had this happen with vinyl or thermoplastic, but that's definitely not going to persuade me to go back, especially for hot side purposes.
that being said, i would recommend this to be use for the whip attachment and if needed, use it for the bag. no off gassing and food grade, so no worries on being safe with this product.
One note- the rubber on this hose seems to be 'stickier' than the original Katadyn hoses, so it seems to be a magnet for any bit of dirt or lint. Not a big deal, but it's annoying. This hose also appears quite a bit whiter than the Katadyn hose, which is fine (makes it easier to tell the hoses apart).
