About Food Grade Activated Carbon
Food Grade Activated Carbon is produced by the heating coconuts shell, sugarcane bagasse, soybean hulls and nutshells in extremely high temperature until they are burned up and carbonized in ashes. This ash is then processed with steam or hot air at equally high temperatures to produce a microporous structure. Before it hit mainstream food culture, activated carbon was a popular ingredient for detox enthusiasts. Long before that, even, Food Grade Activated Carbon was used by Ayurvedic and Eastern medicine practitioners to whiten teeth and cleanse toxic mold spores from the body.

The Department of Health says in a statement that restaurants and cafes aren’t allowed to serve food with activated charcoal in it because it’s “prohibited by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a food additive or food coloring agent.” The FDA says that it currently has no regulation on activated charcoal as a food additive or color additive as an ingredient to be added to food — though companies may decide that their use of activated charcoal is “generally recognized as safe” after approval from “qualified experts,” which allows legal usage before official FDA approval.
