Our Commitment to Quality

Larry Galberd, Global Technical Service Director - EP Minerals

At EP Minerals, our mission is to consistently produce the highest quality products in the industrial minerals industry at all of our plants. Quality is an integral part of how we work and what we do. We have an entire team dedicated to quality, working with our Research & Development team, and directly with our plants to constantly test our incoming ores and finished products. Today, EP Minerals produces and ships DE and perlite products worldwide to hundreds of industries, including a large variety of food and beverage companies.

Our diatomaceous earth and perlite filter aids, as well as our specialty functional additives, are classified as “Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS)" by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We also comply with the respective U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention's Food Chemicals Codex (FCC) requirements for our filter aids and functional additives. This regulatory body focuses on food safety by maintaining strict standards on all DE and perlite products that come in contact with food and beverage goods

Recently, there has been a lot of attention from the news media regarding the amount of arsenic in beverages and beverage-related products. It is important to note that our products are consistently much lower in soluble arsenic than the Food Chemical Codex limit.
