So, what is charbon végétal?

Charbon végétal, or vegetable charcoal, is a natural food ingredient that is made by burning various plant materials, such as coconut shells or hardwood, in the absence of oxygen. The resulting charcoal is then ground into a fine powder that is used in a variety of culinary applications. It is prized for its ability to adsorb toxins and impurities, making it a popular ingredient in detox drinks and supplements. In addition, it is often used as a natural food coloring agent due to its deep black color, adding a unique touch to dishes such as ice cream, bread, and macarons.
