Diatomaceous (“dahy-uh-tuh-mey-shuhs”) Earth is composed of the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny single-celled, micro-organisms called diatoms. When these organisms died, their skeletal remains settled to the bottom of large bodies of water and became fossilized. It is the fossilized exoskeletons of these diatoms that create diatomaceous earth.
Red Lake Earth is a unique blend of Diatomaceous Earth and Calcium Bentonite (also known as Calcium Montmorillonite).
Red Lake Diatomaceous Earth meets both Food and Feed Grade specifications.
A unique, naturally occurring mineral deposit which typically contains 65% Diatomaceous Earth (skeletal remains of algae) and 35% Montmorillonite (calcium rich volcanic deposit). RLE is for use as an anti-caking agent. Feeds not to exceed 2% of the total diet. OMRI listed.
