Yeah so I don't think you'll find the type of clay you're looking for here. Not for tested health purposes as you seek. The forum sellers sell their clay as novelty so its up to you to eat it or not. As for me, I'm not fussed if its tested or not as I always bake my clay before eating and at the end of the day its my prerogative. Plus I don't think my grandmother in Africa tested her clay for all them levels before she ate it lol
All the clays sold here have been eaten for years in their respective countries so there's no worry from me.
I think its important to note, testing clay is important, but more important is historical use, if "grandmother in Africa" has gotten her clay from a source that was used by her ancestors for ever, the clay is proven safe. The same can be said for native use of clays in America and Australia.
That is what is looked for when applying for a health product number.

what kind of clay do you order and what does it taste like?:)
Hey, the one I eat is in chunks form. The moment you bite into it, it starts to stick everywhere in your mouth. N then you have really workout with your tongue . It doesnot have any earthy flavour or smell but its creamy. Most important is it helps to detoxify and have a good health.. I would say its not for taste, it's for health.
