Granulated Alum powder might just be Nuts.com's most versatile product. Although alum powder is most commonly used in pickling recipes, to keep pickles crispy, our customers have found dozens of other alum powder uses, including: tanning hides, dying and coloration, papermaking, medicine, animal care, personal hygiene, soil treatment, and even water purification.
Also known as aluminum sulfate or powdered alum, alum powder gained some spotlight on the TV show Looney Toons, where characters would use it to shrink each others' heads. In fact, alum powder is an astringent, meaning that it can shrink body tissues (although certainly not heads). This is why alum powder is sometimes used as an aftershave or to treat canker sores. Our alum powder is pure, granulated, and very useful!
