    Are there different qualities of food grade diatomaceous earth? Prices are all over the place advertising the same product.

    Food grade in diatomaceous earth is the same, It use to be very cheap in the farm stores, in 50 lab sacks, but has been discontinued in large sacks since they can get more $ on smaller amount. Food grade is just that ,food grade., no chemicals added. It pays to price check every where for the best price.

    Hey Becky, no difference in quality as long as it's Food Grade. We buy ours from Amazon.com in 50 pound bags. It's free shipping with a Prime membership. We paid $56.49 in June, which is a little over $1 per pound. Love the stuff.
