This neutral pH carbon is a chemically* activated wood based powdered carbon with unusually high adsorptive capacity for a broad range of organics. Its high surface area and large volume of meso pores allow it to rapidly remove color, taste, and odor compounds from solution. Thus it is designed for those applications requiring a neutral pH and a minimum amount of carbon to remove a maximum amount of impurities. Specific cost effective uses are in purification of food products such as liquid sugars, lactose, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, non-essential proteins, monosodium glutamate, juices, wine and in pharmaceutical and fine chemical purification. In addition its high purity and excellent filterability make it especially suited for these uses. It meets the food-grade quality of activated carbons as defined in the current edition of the Food Chemicals Codex. It is Certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61 and is Kosher. *Chemical activation: Prior to carbonization, the raw material is impregnated with certain chemicals. The chemical is typically an acid, strong base, or a salt (phosphoric acid, potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, calcium chloride, and zinc chloride 25%). Then, the raw material is carbonized at lower temperatures (450-900 °C). It is believed that the carbonization/activation step proceeds simultaneously with the chemical activation. Chemical activation is preferred over physical activation owing to the lower temperatures and shorter time needed for activating material. -Wikipedia
