Published on Jul 18, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Bleaching Clay Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global bleaching clay market reached a value of US$ 1.43 Billion in 2021. Bleaching clay refers to a powdered material that is widely used for removing impurities from edible oils. It is a tasteless, odorless and non-toxic beige powder that is composed of attapulgite, bentonite and sepiolite. It helps in removing unwanted substances from the oil. It is generally mixed with water that is added to the oil, aids in reducing the content of chlorophyll and decomposes oxidation substances. Since edible oils contain various contaminants that are harmful to human consumption, there has been a significant utilization of bleaching clay in order to make the oil safe for consumption.
