Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) is a safe, non-toxic substance made up of fossils of freshwater organisms and marine life. It is a feed supplement, for use as an inert carrier or anticaking agent in feeds. Millions of years ago, these one-celled organisms called diatoms took the minerals from the waters and created protective shells for themselves. Under a microscope, these crushed diatoms resemble shards of broken glass.

Suggested Uses for DE:

Add to finished feed at the rate of 4 lbs Perma Guard per tonne of feed to prevent clumping. Available in 50 lb or 2 kg bag.

More Detailed Information....on DE


Millions of years ago, in all the waters of the earth, microscopic one-celled plants called diatoms took the minerals from the waters and created protective shells for themselves. Diatoms once lived in quantities far beyond the mind's ability to conceive, and as they died their shells drifted to the bottom of the sea beds. There are now more than 1,500 ways in which man benefits from this incredible material left by diatoms, whose shells are composed largely of Silicon Dioxide, along with trace minerals.

When added to animal feeds, at an amount not to exceed 2 percent by weight of the total feed ration, DE prevents "clumping" of feed particles by keeping them separate. This improves f1owability, mixability and handling of the animal feed.

Bio-Ag Consultants & Distributors Inc makes no claims as to the effectiveness of using DE with regards to these uses.
