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!

“Thanks for getting the alum to me so promply. You are a life saver. I was paying a fortune at the store for these tiny containers. It is way more economical to buy in a large quantity. This way I can make my pickles and it won't cost a fortune. I was paying for 7 small containers what I bought from you in a 5 lb. bag. Thanks again.
To anyone who is thinking of using this company I would highly recommend them for their ease of use, their promptness in filling and shipping their orders and their concern for their customers needs. They let me know when the order was filled and shipped and I got a follow up email almost immediately after the package was delivered. It is hard to find this kind of service in this day and age.
Thanks again for the prompt service.”

“What a great company this is! I called when they were closed and left my number. They actually called me back - I was stunned! The lady I talked with was so nice and by the time I got back to my computer and logged in to my email, my order had already been shipped. These folks are on the ball! Thanks for reminding me what great service is all about.”

“Wow, I'm impressed! I ordered alum to make alum crystals for a classroom science project and decided to buy he dried fruit on a whim. It is the best I've ever had. Loved the fruit mix sample, thank you!”
