Diatomaceous earth



Diatomaceous earth is a naturally occurring sand extracted from the earth. It consists of microscopic skeletons of algae, known as diatoms, that have fossilised over millions of years. There are two main types of diatomaceous earth: food grade, which is suitable for consumption, and filter grade, which is toxic to humans but has many industrial uses.


The diatoms in diatomaceous earth are largely made up of a chemical compound called silica. Silica is commonly found in nature, from sand and rocks to plants and humans. However, diatomaceous earth is a concentrated source of silica, which makes it unique.
