I'd been using Bargain Fittings https://www.bargainfittings.com/index.php?route=common/home for a while now and a quick comparison of just a few fittings shows their pricing to be a bit lower than BrewHardware BUT... BrewHardware looks to have quite a bit more than just fittings, and their tubing comes in a bit lower than Bargain Fittings.

Bargain Fittings claims their silicone tubing has FDA approval and NSF 51 Certification, and BrewHardware claims FDA approval so either one should be plenty safe for direct food contact and both claim they can go up to 500 F. Looks like these are two good choices for quality silicone tubing.

I checked on of my favorite places to order stuff from Brewers Hardware Supply. www.brewershardware.com
They have all kinds of silicone tubing but it is $2+ per foot.  You might be able to do better than that.
