Bamboo Charcoal Powder

Bamboo charcoal powder is a food additive product. It has many applications in food, beauty and health care.

Bamboo charcoal is produced by carbonizing moso bamboo at more than 800 degrees.
If you take a look at a cross section of a piece of bamboo charcoal, you will see that there are countless small holes in it.

These countless small holes purify by absorbing impurities and harmful substances that are the source of dirt and odors.
The power of these countless small holes is also said to bring about antibacterial, moisture proofing, deodorant effects, and also far-infrared effects.

Bamboo charcoal is processed to be ultra-fine (10 microns), so it is both tasteless and odorless and doesn’t affect texture.
