We need some advise in order to know if we can use the DE we use on animals (food suplement) in humans or is there any difference?

Diatomaceous Earth in Chile: Answer
by: Pauly

Hi Sergio,

Thanks for your question. I want to stress first the importance, in which I'm sure you know already, the difference in food grade and non-food grade if at least for our readers here at the website.

1.Food grade DE is mined from ancient fresh water lake beds which is approved by the EPA and FDA (in USA)

2.Straight calcined (heated), mined from fresh and salt water, which is used as pool filters and beverage filters like beer, juices, and even oils.

3.Flux Calcined, (heated) treated differently, but like above for filtering.

So if the Label indicates that it is indeed "Food Grade" then it is not only safe for animals but people as well as it is already used world wide in grains and other foods that we ingest.

Thanks again for the DE question Sergio. I don't get many of those yet.
