/What else can silica gel desiccant be used for?
The main component of silica gel desiccant is silicon dioxide, which is a highly active adsorption material, which is purified and processed into granular or bead shape from natural minerals. Silica is a porous structure with numerous pores in a sponge-like shape; the pores can absorb moisture, which is why silica is widely used in the production of silica gel desiccants.
Having said that, silica gel desiccant uses its powerful moisture absorption function to effectively keep food dry, so that it can make the best use of it? Experts tell us that, in fact, silica gel desiccant has another magical effect. Chemical experts pointed out that when planting flowers and trees, the silica gel desiccant is poured out and mixed into the soil, which can be used as fertilizer. In fact, silica gel fertilizers have long been sold on the market. The main component of silica gel is silicium, which has the effect of promoting plant photosynthesis. Silica gel fertilizer is especially effective in rice cultivation. In addition to being used as fertilizer, you can put flowers and silica gel desiccant in a bag for a period of time to make brightly colored dried flowers; of course, a small bag is definitely not enough, so put more bags. By the way, some people on the Internet say that after the food desiccant is used, its water absorption capacity will recover after drying in the sun. This is not correct. The desiccant cannot be reused, and the second use has no moisture absorption effect. It should be said on the Internet that it is recycled material, which must be professionally dried and processed before it can be used, and the moisture absorption rate of recycled material is much lower than that of new material.
Are these magical effects of food desiccant beyond your expectations? After eating candies and pastries in the future, don’t throw away the desiccant in the bag in a hurry, put it to good use!
