100% Codex Food Grade Fossil Shell Flour (Diatomaceous Earth) is FDA approved, all-natural and safe for animal consumption up to 2% of feed by weight.
How it Works
Earth is composed of diatoms, which are tiny fossilized shells of marine plants. Over time these algae-like plants form a naturally occurring siliceous compound containing minerals such as silicon, calcium, sodium, magnesium, and iron. When ground up these diatoms have the look and feel of talcum powder.
Ultimately, Diatomaceous Earth works by dehydration. The diatom is composed mostly of air making it ideal for liquid or fluid absorption. Diatomaceous Earth quickly absorbs fluids. Diatomaceous Earth is the perfect answer.
Diatomaceous Earth is to be mixed at a rate not to exceed 2% of the total dry feed weight.
