Got beer? Or wine, tequila, bourbon, whiskey, rum, vodka or soda? How ‘bout wings? For most Americans that enjoy the Super Bowl, the season’s biggest game is much more than just a sports event. In many ways, Super Bowl Sunday has become a truly American holiday. And like with most holidays, food and drinks both play an important role in our national celebration. With millions of viewers expected to watch Super Bowl LIII, many will gather with friends and family to watch the Patriots and Rams, and that means they’re be digging in to a host of traditional game day favorites like pizza, Buffalo wings, beer, wine, and other spirits. None of it would be on the Tom Brady diet, that’s for sure.

First of all, let's set the record straight. Good thing all that beer, wine, soda, and spirits are filtered with diatomaceous earth (DE) filter aid. Those beverages certainly wouldn’t be the same without DE.

handsHere at EP Minerals and EP Engineered Clays, we have a unique way to kick off every week. One of our team members writes up the EP Way Fundamental of the Week and shares it with everyone in the company.

We learn more about each other and see the fundamental of the week through another person's eyes, which is always insightful, given the wide variety of what our employees do.  Our culture and fundamentals are what makes EP Minerals different than any other company.
