Clay is very nutritious. And can be very healthy actually.

And it is used in some foodstuff you eat. As filling is some Pralines for example.

I am used to tasting sediments. Its the way us geo-archaeologists test soil samples for sediment grain size.

LaMa’s right. Clay can be very nutritious. Although, I believe the content varies by location.

If any of you has ever eaten “Belgian"pralines, it is quite likely you have eaten clay too. Kaolinite clay, which tastes sweet, is used as a praline filler.

It does. The term “clay” merely says something about the grain size, not the minerals in it.

I heard Belgian waffles taste nice with chocolate wet clay smeared all over them….....

There is nothing “dirty” about clay, as long as it doesn’t come from the top soil.
