Premium food grade steam-activated charcoal powder (safe for ingestion)
Made from coconut shell
Acid-washed for extra purity
Activated charcoal has a long history of medical and cosmetic use. Activated charcoal is a special form of carbon that can bind other substances on its surface (adsorption). When taken internally, charcoal passes through the digestive tract collecting toxic substances such as chemicals and poisons before they can be absorbed by the body. The substances are then able to be expelled from the digestive tract.
Activated charcoal is made by burning carbon-rich coconut shells at very high temperatures to create charcoal. The result is a black, odourless powder. The charcoal is then "activated" through a special steam process that creates holes in the charcoal particles, increasing surface area and available binding sites.
If you are intending to cook or or otherwise ingest this product we recommend sieving as occasionally larger particles of charcoal can occur in this product.
