Please read our genuine, unsolicited reviews and you will see what a great product this is. Health Leads food grade Diatomaceous Earth is from a pure, fresh water source. Diatomaceous Earth is also known as DE, fossil shell Flour, diatomite and kieselgur. This fine powder is made up of fossilized microscopic skeletal remains of a type of hard shelled plant like algae called diatoms (see image photos). This plant like algae has been part of the earths ecology from the early beginnings of earths history.
Our Diatomaceous Earth is a natural product and is not calcined or flux calcined. Please note: breathing in of dust should be completely avoided.
Not all food grade DE is the same. The shape of the diatoms is very important, they should be tubular with holes in the centre on the walls. Also the DE should be from a fresh water source as this forms a harder and sharper shell compared to a salt water source DE. There are around 600 deposits of Diatomaceous Earth in the United States and only four of these are considered food grade by the FDA. Other food grade DE can contain higher amounts of sediment and clay making the fossil shell flour a gray to brown colour. Other food grade deposit have been analyzed and we are satisfied that our Food grade Diatomaceous earth is the purist form of fresh water DE available.
