Diatomaceous Earth - Canada's Best Source for Food Grade DE
Diatomaceous Earth is a naturally occurring fresh water sediment, (also known as DE, Diatomite, or Kieselgur) composed of microscopic remains (shells) of prehistoric diatoms; the most common form of phytoplankton. It has a soft and smooth texture when crushed and ground to a very fine and off-white powder. Some industrial grades can be harmful to people and pets for handling and consumption, that's why we offer only the highest quality Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth.
Your Safety and Satisfaction is our priority...
All our Diatomaceous Earth is the Safe Food Grade that is a powerful health alternative for people. Our DE is purchased through a regulated supply chain as advised by Health Canada. Out of the options we have sourced, the DE we are providing to Canadians, coast to coast, is the safest quality available in North America. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is gaining a lot of popularity in the last 5 years based on testimonial sharing of our customers, one to another, so much so that even naturopaths and other health practitioners are adding our Food Grade DE to their products, offering their customers this new and innovative alternative to improve their health and well-being. We advise caution if you are purchasing your DE from suppliers or stores that are not official suppliers, or working in alignment with Health Canada's regulated suppliers. There is a lot of Diatomaceous Earth out there, but not all of it is safe, especially for people. For more details, please see our page DE for People. We guarantee our products safety, your satisfaction is our top priority.
Another exciting use of our product is for your Pets! Food Grade DE is typically best for mammalian pets (Cats, Dogs, Rabbits, Hamsters, and other mammals), and has also some benefits for birds and reptiles as well. Our Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is safe to use around your pet and also adding to their diet for even more benefits. Commonly DE is added to a pets diet in an amount not to exceed 2% of the total diet. Because our product is a natural form of amorphous silica, it helps to add strength to clays and nails, and brings about a positive stimulation to the digestive tract, as well as reducing, preventing, and even eliminating parasites that could be living inside your pets digestive system for a very long time. There are many more benefits for pets than we can list here in a shorty summary, for more details and information, please see our page DE for Pets, or simply click the image to the right...
And still another use for our Diatomaceous Earth is for the Home and Garden. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth has a unique porous and hexagonal structure which enables it to be highly absorptive, able to absorb four times (x4) its dry weight in water. What this means is that the many outdoor and home uses of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is due to its remarkable ability to absorb and nearly dry-out anything. Along with this powerful drying and absorbing quality, is the added safety of our DE being unaltered and 100% Natural. To be more specific, we have not added any chemicals and keep our product completely pure of any other agents, and neither has our product been altered by heat or pressure treatments which can change the silica from amorphous (natural rock form) to a crystalline form (glass). The crystalline form can be very dangerous when exposed to people or pets, or around your food (like in the garden). Please be very cautious in regards to where you source your Diatomaceous Earth, because not all kinds are suitable for the home and garden, some forms may be poisonous. We can guarantee that our product is 100% Safe and Non-Toxic, for all applications and natural uses. More info? See Home & Garden.
