Directions for use
Serving suggestions: 1 standard serve = 5 grams (approximately 1 heaped teaspoon)
Clay Drink: Add 1 heaped teaspoon to a glass of water, juice or your favourite smoothie. Lightly stir and it is ready to drink.
Premixed Clay Drink: Mix 1 part clay to 10 parts water. eg.100g of clay to 1 litre of water. 1 serve = 50 ml. Dilute with water or juice as required. Shake well before use.
Edible Paste: 1 part clay to 2 parts water. eg 20g clay to 40ml water. For best results let it hydrate for a couple of hours, the longer the better. No mixing is necessary, just let it sit. Any excess water can be poured off.
Tip: Sprinkle the clay into the water. Not the water to the clay. When making a large amount sprinkle it in layers ie. water first then clay then water etc. It will hydrate more evenly.
Store the hydrated clay in a sealed container of food grade plastic or glass only.
Refrigerate when premixed for ingestion.
