So, what is kaolin?

Kaolin is a naturally occurring white clay that is commonly used in the food industry as a thickening agent, binder, and as a natural alternative to synthetic additives. This mineral is derived from the mineral kaolinite, which is found in abundance in certain regions of the world. Kaolin has a unique ability to absorb large amounts of water, making it an effective ingredient in the production of baked goods, sauces, and beverages. It is also used as a polishing agent for candy and pills. In addition, kaolin is known for its ability to promote digestive health by binding to toxins and impurities in the digestive tract.
