What do you all use as an anti-caking agent when you powder your onions and garlic?

I have found that 1 T of homemade/homegrown onion powder needs approximately 1/16 tsp bentonite clay to keep it from clumping.

Is bentonite clay a good option to have daily in small amounts like this? Any risks?

Does anyone know of a better safe choice for an anti-caking agent? I'd really like to use one I can grow in my garden :)
