Overview: 

Cultural Practices Rendered Safe

Human Geophagia, a phenomenon widely practised especially in Africa, is the craving and deliberate ingestion of clayey soils. It is frequently practised by women and children to relieve hunger, supply nutritional deficiencies or as folk medicine. Geophagic individuals are very selective in the type of clayey soil they consume, where it is obtained, and its quality. We produce geophagic bars and foodstuffs that are safe for human consumption.
