This Superfine Food Grade DE has been extra-milled and sorted to an average particle size of less than 300 microns (or 0.3 mm). It has been analysed with the particle analysis showing 90% containing less than 200 microns. It is a creamy/whitish colour that feels similar to milk powder, easily mixed with food or liquid (although no DE is water soluble).
Like all grades of DE, Superfine is mined directly from the ground and so is not produced in sterile conditions. While no DE produced in Australia has been certified for human consumption, many consumers do choose to eat it, seeking to obtain the many reported health benefits. If you choose to consume DE, spread it in a baking tray and heat in a moderately slow oven of 180 to 250 degrees for 30 minutes to ensure it is sterilised.
Aside from family use, Superfine has many uses and may assist with fleas and garden pests, insects, spraying on vegetables and fruit trees, and for use with horses and livestock.
Superfine is more voluminous than Regular Food Grade, and may be stored indefinitely in an airtight container, in a cool, dry place.
