I've read quite a bit about fulvic acid. I didn't know that it could be derived from wood. Is it a byproduct of the pulping process?

I am not affiliated with Mr. Fulvic, but they get their fulvic from a shallow shale deposit without excavators or blasting. After they get the water soluble fulvic, they put the source material back with minimal disruption to the ground. I really like that company.

Correct. But don't ask me for a brand name...

I changed brands already but am searching for highest quality products made as greenly as possible. If anyone knows brand names and their benefits, I for one, am very interested.

Does anyone know the source of Kelp4Less' powdered fulvic?

According to:
https://www.chinalignin.com/applicat...n-agriculture/

Lignin is broken down into lignosulfates in the paper pulping process. They can act as a surfactant or complexor. It can also be broken down into lignohumate. Different forms can chelate potassium and ammonium. I assume by isolating the short chain humates that fulvic acid could be the end result. Interesting stuff!

For the most part, Kelp4Less uses the cheapest, lowest quality products available.
Potassium in a fulvic product = poor manufacturing process.

The process uses heat and potassium hydroxide (among other salts/agents) for extraction.
It destroys the bioactivity of the fulvic acid and you are left with salts in your product.
Cold water extraction methods retain the bioactivity of the fulvic acid, and your product is clean.
The cheap stuff is leftovers from destructive mining practices.

How do you know this?

I didn't even know fulvic had to be 'bioactive' - Isn't its mode of action chelation?
