Compare DE Grades

What are the differences between the grades?

There are 3 different types of Diatomaceous Earth that we sell, it is important to know that all the Diatom that we sell is food grade:

  • The first is DiatomPure® Human, We have have spent years sourcing the the purest form to use for our DiatomPure® Human. Working alongside Food Safety within the UK to ensure quality and care is taken in all aspects of DiatomPure® Human. People use DiatomPure® Human for its abundant silica content. Our DiatomPure® Human differs from the DiatomPure® Animal and Pest grade, as it contains less imperfections and is a lot finer to help consumption.
  • The second is DiatomPure® Animal, with its high silica content which makes it an excellent feed additive for your household pets, farm animals/livestock, and much more can benefit from adding this silica-rich supplement to animal feed.
    DiatomPure®  Animal is specially milled to animal feed quality & approved as a feed additive for animals and livestock and use in organic systems.
  • The third is DiatomPest®,  this product can be used in a wide range of locations to help eliminate insects such as ants, aphids, flea beetles, fleas, earwigs, sow bugs, mange mites, flies, and ticks.
