Charcoal In Things

Get a lot of charcoal in things you eat nowadays, 2007 me didn’t see that coming if I’m being honest.

Anything improved with charcoal activation? Why has activated become the synonymous adjective?

What does it do?

It means you’ve burned the shit out of it to give it a really high surface area. Used to use it in the lab for some things.

The palladium on activated charcoal would spontaneously combust if you let it get dry, which was always… fun.

Some ladies went on Dragon’s Den the other day with a product called Collagin which was gin that had collagen in it.

Activated charcoal is what they give people who’ve been poisoned isn’t it? Absorbs all the poison rather than it being digested into their system.
