So, what is bentonite?

Bentonite is a powerful natural clay mineral that's commonly used in the food industry as a thickener, binder, and clarifying agent. It's created from volcanic ash and contains high amounts of montmorillonite, making it highly absorbent and capable of binding with other substances. In the culinary world, bentonite is often used to clarify wines and beers by removing impurities and sediment. It also has applications in dairy and meat products to improve texture and shelf life. Bentonite is a versatile ingredient that's considered safe for consumption, making it a popular choice for many food manufacturers.
