Bleaching clays and diatomaceous earth (DE) work together exceptionally well in filtration. In edible oil processing, the primary role of Bleaching Clays is to improve oil stability, flavor, taste, and appearance. Bleaching clays are used in purification to remove color bodies (like chlorophyll) and unwanted contaminants like soaps, insecticides, and oxidation products. DE is then used to remove the bleaching clay particles, the wax after the oil cools, and to clarify the oil. DE and Bleaching Clays make a great team!
