This is a 500 g bottle of anhydrous calcium chloride - meaning these calcium chloride pellets/granules have no water in them. It is the 4-20 mesh granular form, it's useful as a desiccant (a drying agent) and de-icer (ice-melting agent), and it is not food grade (though food-grade versions can be used for cheese making).
