This product is similar to T-41, as it is an Acid Activated Bentonite Clay for Bleaching & Decolorizing Edible Oils.
BVV™ Color Bleach is a filtration aid used in refining and increasing the purity and clarity of the final product. The BVV™ Clay Bleach is composed of a 10:1 ratio of Pure-Flo® Perform 6000 and BVV™ T-1 Hardwood Activated Carbon. This product is 100% made in the USA, and the components are FDA-GRAS and NSF Certified.
This bleaching clay not only improves the purity and clarity of the end product, it also improves the color and clarity. This is a strong acid-activated media and the acid will be critical in removing red, purple, and blue pigments known as Anthocyanins. This media can be used in a Color Remediation Column, or between Short Path Distillation runs with a Hot Scrub, to make your distilled oil clean and more clear.
