Superfine Grade 2kg - Diatomaceous Earth
‘No-grit’ Food Grade Superfine Diatomaceous Earth has many applications, and will appeal to users who are seeking a fine powder with no grit or larger particles. We take the raw, coarse material to DEO’s own processing plant and put it through a number of additional processes to produce a powder that is easy and pleasant to use.
This is exactly the same quality DE as the Regular Food Grade but has been extra-milled and sorted to an average particle size of less than 300 microns (or 0.3 mm). It has been analysed by the CSIRO – with the particle analysis showing 90% containing less than 200 microns. It is a creamy/whitish colour that feels similar to milk powder, easily mixed with food or liquid (although no DE is water soluble).
Like all grades of DE, No-Grit Superfine is mined directly from the ground and so is not produced in sterile conditions. While no DE produced in Australia has been certified for human consumption, many consumers do choose to eat it, seeking to obtain the many reported health benefits. If you choose to consume DE, spread it in a baking tray and heat in a moderately slow oven of 140-160 degrees (not hotter) for 30 minutes to ensure it is sterilised.
Aside from family use, No Grit Superfine has many uses including in pet and animal fur, with insects, spraying on vegetables and fruit trees, and for use with horses and livestock.
