Of the 600 DE deposits in the U.S., only four are considered food grade by the FDA. Our Lumino Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is from the Four Corners region of the southwestern U.S. and is prized for the purity and consistency of its ore deposits.*
Considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA, it's almost pure white powder and consists of 89-94% silicon dioxide, plus other trace minerals.
From freshwater DE deposits
The two original sources for diatomaceous earth are freshwater and saltwater. Our freshwater deposit began eons ago as pure snow. The snow's runoff provided the water source for the diatoms to thrive. Diatoms in freshwater form a harder, more uniform shaped shell than those in saltwater.
Hardness is important because, as these minute, solid and sharp diatomaceous earth cylinders pass through the small and large intestines, they scrub the walls. After only a few months of taking DE, the intestinal wall is likely no longer coated with mucus and other deposits.*
The silica in Lumino DE is amorphous, meaning it retains its naturally occurring state.
