Diatomaceous Earth

SKU 6059 Categories ,

For over 60 years, Diatomaceous Earth (fossil shell flour) has been added to feeds of livestock, deer, birds, exotic animals and domestic pets. It is made from the crushed, diamond-hard, fossilized shells of the diatom Aulacoseira, which is found in an extremely pure fresh water deposit that dates to the Miocene era. This nearly pure white powder is 89% (or more) Silicon Dioxide with 28 trace minerals. The shell of the Aulacoseira diatom is made of amorphous silica, a naturally occurring and biodegradable mineral. The hardness of the fossilized diatoms keep this product from dissolving in liquid while it’s tubular shape (with many tiny holes along its wall) allows it to readily absorb.
