In primitive times, it was discovered that burning wood in the absence of oxygen (slow pyrolysis) would extract its contents of water, tar, and other volatile constituents, and would turn logs into charcoal. This unique process offers an ultra performing combustible with a high carbon content (30 megajoules/kg), a long lasting burn time and a desirable wood fragrance.
Rediscover the smoky, subtle aromas of cooking with lump charcoal made of 100% hardwood; sugar maple, birch wood and beech wood. Sourced from Canadian forests certified in sustainable development, the charcoal is made from discarded wood that is no longer needed in sawmills. Ideal for BBQ’ing and for use in high end restaurants, Vital charcoal is carefully sifted to a minimum size optimal for quick lighting and maximum heat diffusion.
The advanced technology of charcoal ovens today provides a more efficient and eco-responsible production: A strict quality control process reducing debris in your package (clay and rocks), a complete conversion of wood into charcoal minimizes waste, and no chemical additives provides a 100% natural product.
