WHITE LAKE EARTH

Pure diatomaceous earth.

 

WHAT IS WHITE LAKE EARTH?

White Lake Earth (WLE) is a natural grade (uncalcined), pure diatomaceous earth product. This pure, freshwater diatomaceous earth is composed of Food Chemical Codex Grade DE made of amorphous silica (the good kind of silica). WLE contains a naturally pure form of amorphous silicon dioxide (Si02) and averages over 83.76% Si02, with calcium, magnesium, and other beneficial trace mineral oxides.

White Lake Earth is registered for use as an inert carrier or anti-caking agent in animal feeds in an amount not to exceed two percent (2%) by weight of total ration.

ABOUT OUR DIATOMACEOUS EARTH DEPOSIT

The area just outside of Vale, Oregon is home to our White Lake Earth DE deposit.

Our White Lake Earth pure diatomaceous earth deposit contains a variety of fossilized Melosira species of freshwater diatoms, with a greater number of pores per diatom, and hence greater pore volume. This species of diatom provides significant absorbent qualities.

FAQ

WHAT IS AN ANTI-CAKING AGENT?

Anti-caking agents are added to grain, feed and supplements to absorb moisture that can otherwise lead to clumping and caking. White Lake Earth keeps things dry, and improves flowability, while creating an unfavorable environment for mold and bacterial growth.

WHAT IS FOOD CHEMICAL CODEX GRADE?

To be considered Food Chemical Codex Grade, Diatomaceous Earth must meet a variety of requirements including very low levels of heavy metals like arsenic and lead; White Lake Earth satisfies all aspects of the Food Chemical Codex Grade designation.
