So, what is bone charcoal?

Bone charcoal, also known as bone char, is a type of charcoal made from the bones of animals, typically cows or pigs. The bones are heated at high temperatures in the absence of oxygen, which causes them to break down into a fine black powder. This powder has many uses, including as a filtering agent for sugar and other food products. Bone charcoal is prized for its high carbon content, which makes it ideal for removing impurities and improving the color and clarity of food and beverages. It is also commonly used in water filtration systems due to its ability to absorb impurities and odors.
