With 100% Pure Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth, you can protect your home and garden without resorting to harsh chemicals. What sets diatomaceous earth apart is that it works by physical rather than chemical action. One of nature's richest sources of silica, diatomaceous earth consists of the fossilized remains of hard shelled algae known as diatoms. These fossilized shells are both highly absorptive and mildly abrasive.


Q: Why does the label say "Not intended for human consumption" if the product is food grade?
A: Diatomaceous Earth products come in 'food grade' and 'pool grade' labels. Pool grade products are considered toxic, whereas food grade products are not. Because our Diatomaceous Earth product isn't toxic, we mark it as being food grade, which makes it safe for use in homes and gardens.

Terms and Ingredient Definitions


Ingredients: Diatomaceous earth (fossil shell powder).

Directions: Can be used in the garden by sprinkling on plants and mixing into the soil surrounding them.

NOTE: Not intended for human consumption.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! I've read everything on the Diatomaceous Earth site, and I was pleased to find it at Swanson. It is as great as I had hoped it would be! July 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Love This Product This product is great I could feel my energy levels going up and it cleanses well. May 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Food Grade as Supplement Despite the skittish nature of Swanson's lawyers, the rest of the world is using Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth as a silica supplement, apparenrly with good results. August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not for Humans OK - I bought this stuff specifically as a health aid for me. Now I see that it is not for human consumption. So why is it "food grade" if I can't use it? Guess I'll use it in the pool filter. July 5, 2015
