Powdered, dried fruits; desiccant crystals mixed in.
    #4359242 - 07/01/05 01:19 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

    Well...like the subject says.  Had a decent amount of powdered, totally dried mushrooms in a mason jar with a little thing of desiccant.  Long story short, I am a dumbass.  More in-depth: the desiccant holder was difficult to pull out of the mason jar and it overturned into the powder. 
    Sifting it through a strainer doesn't especially help, as the powdered mushrooms do have larger, irregular "flakes" that don't pass through the wire of the sifter along with the silica gel crystals. 
    Any bright ideas how to separate the silica gel crystals from the good stuff? 
    Or, will silica gel be okay to ingest in the small amounts that might get past closer inspection after sorting out a couple of grams when its needed?

    Would like to avoid re-wetting a mass of powder and drying it again--that just sounds like an unholy mess. 
    Thanks for any help.  :smile2:

I wouldnt ingest silica... that just sounds like a bad idea, it seems as if the only to seperate these would be wetting the powdered solution and hopefully the silica will sink and you can get your mush out quick... you just might be screwed.

I know someone who did the same thing. He had no problems after ingesting silica powdwer. They use those little packets in food packaging, vitamins, etc.. so I wouldn't think it would be toxic. I believe it is quite benign in small amounts.

Ditto.

A friend mixed some desiccant (crystals) with 5 grams dry power by accident....he got most out...and ate it liek an idiot and had me worried the whole night.

He turned out fine, but everyone's body is different.

If there's a tiny bit, i'd be careful, if there's a bunch, I'd just re-start.

Dying isn't worth any drug IMO.

I pulled this off google real quick :wink:.

Putting Some Poisoning Myths to Rest

MYTH #1: SILICA GEL
The West Virginia Poison Center receives numerous calls concerning the ingestion of silica gel packets. A mother calls, concerned because her 10-month old daughter has just swallowed a packet, or a concerned pet owner calls in fear for her rottweiler who has just chewed a packet. In fact, silica gel is non-toxic, and will not poison your child or pet. These packets can be a choking hazard, however.

if you absolutely had to eat them, i would dilute that batch into future batches, maybe 10% of the weight of the new batch... so to avoid a concentration of silica gel.

are they the little balls? cause you could pick a lot of those out, maybe dump all the powder into a foil tray, and shake back and forth untill they surface, or sink... and then seperate them manualy...

Gratsie! 

I figured silica was relatively benign.  I mean, silicone isn't toxic, I don't think.  Anyway.  Cheers!  :cool:

interesting, i was under the presumption that silica gel was posionous as well.  Ah well, fuck dessicants, im just gonna take the easy way out and get a dehydrator :laugh:
