This Food grade diatomaceous earth is approved to be mixed with grains to control meal worms and other pests. Diatomaceous earth is USDA approved as an anti-caking agent for animal feed.
Our fine All Stop Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is not the same as most other diatomaceous earth products in the marketplace. Our DE is food-grade, safe to ingest for internal parasites and the dust is safe to breathe without a mask.
All Stop DE is extremely pure and comes from a water deposit of the diatom Melosira Preicelanica which is made of amorphous silica. Why is this diatom so special? It's shell is stronger and structually superior to other DE. It's shape and hardness keeps it from dissolving in liquid. Because of it's shape, the holes along the diatom's wall allow it to absorb moisture without collapsing; therefore it's used as an anti-caking agent and is considered to be the most effective DE.
Amorphous silica is silica in it's natural occurring state. It is a trace mineral every mammal on the planet needs to live.
DE that is used for swimming pool filters and with pesticides or insect baits is toxic to humans; therefore it is important to understand the difference between regular pool-grade DE and our food-grade DE. Other brands of DE may often include additives (up to 23% by volume)of toxic, harsh chemicals such as pyrethrum, piperonyl butoxide or pesticides and may contain contaminants such as crystaline silica - these products should not be administered near animals or humans. However, our food-grade DE is so safe, it is approved to be used as a an anti-caking agent for grain storage and an organic de-wormer added to livestock and poultry feed.
Our food grade diatomaceous earth is organic OMRI listed Codex Food Chemical Grade. This non-calcined, non-treated fresh water Diatomaceous Earth is mined, sifted,crushed, bagged and pure white in color. It contains less than .5% crystaline silica. You actually get more value of what you want for less and Safest too!
