How does activated charcoal differ from regular charcoal?

Updated 5 months ago by Becca

Regular charcoal is not heated to as high of temperature as activated charcoal, which means it is not nearly as porous and lacks a comparable surface area (more surface area=the better it can trap those toxins).

In addition, activated charcoal is far higher in purity, meaning regular charcoal may contain more chemicals, debris, binders or additives not suitable for food grade consumption.
