Here are a few examples.
Your Clay should be tested and certified.
No clay is certified by the FDA or any one else as edible. Don’t be fooled by this smoke screen. Just because a company has an expensive analysis done by a Mass Spectrometer and have received a chemical composition breakdown does not certify the clay as any more edible than any other clay. Since it is extremely difficult and expensive to determine the content , because a separate test must be performed for each particular element or compound, most clay companies only have the dominant elements tested. There for the certification only pertains to the elements that the company chose to test for. What does that say for the results of any of these analyses, if the company can be selective as to what the clay is tested for?
Your clay should have an extra high PH of 9.7
All real bentonite clay has a high PH of 9 to 10. Anything over 7.5 is considered high PH and on the alkaline side and that is what matters.
The clay is only effective or "alive" if it comes from more than 6 meters below the earth.
Then how did the Indians get to it? Are we supposed to believe the early Indians dug past the clay that was easily accessible on top; to get to the so-called living activated clay 6 meters below ground? I think not. They used the clay that was easily accessible and that is the clay that worked for them. Because there is no big difference.
Packaging clay in plastic.
Again this is just an attempt to justify higher cost for expensive packaging. Although it is true that you do not want to store activated clay where it is in direct contact with a metal or plastic. This only applies to activated clay, or clay that has been mixed with water. Storing the inactivated clay powder in a food grade BPA free plastic container is perfectly OK. Because the clay does not start to absorb until it is activated.
So what’s really going on?
I am going to let you in on what’s really going on. .Here is the big secret that the industry does not want you to know.
In most cases the clay all comes from the same mine.
The difference is that calcium is used to dilute bentonite so it can be used in other products like soap, cat litter, and make up. Calcium bentonite is what you have after that mixing process.
Real pure bentonite clay is capable of absorbing 7 to 10 times its own weight in water, and swelling up to 18 times its dry volume. This is what gives bentonite its pulling power. This also makes it extremely hard to mix because it clumps instantly when water is added. So most commercial bentonite is mixed with calcium at the mill to make it easier to mix for commercial and industrial purposes. When calcium is added, it can only diminish the ability of the clay. So it stands to reason that you would use far less, pure bentonite than you would calcium bentonite, to achieve similar results.
