I am also trying to find this in a "food grade" formulation for garden use. It does not appear to have a translation that works well in google search and the Swiss folk I've asked seem to have no idea what I'm talking about.

From what I recall, there is a brand name version called Celite which is used in the filtration industry.

Many thanks.
Chemical grade diatomaceous earth is Kieselgur (f) in German, kieselguhr (m!) in French (actually that's an obsolete German spelling that made it into some other languages), farina fossile or sabbia di diatomee or terra diatomacea or kieselgur in Italian, and probably terra diatomacea or something pretty close also in most Romansh dialects. Available in drugstores.
