"It should be noted that a product called Kaolin-pectate is the original formula and can be obtained from [name of company, with external link]." -- Does this qualify as advertsing that should be removed from Wikipedia or not? -- 188.8.131.52 13:48, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
Request for expansion
This article can be improved by the addition of more information on the reasons for the changes in the active ingredient (in the 1990s from Kaolin and pectin to attapulgite, and in the 2000s from attapulgite to bismuth subsalicylate which is also the active ingredient in Pepto-Bismol).

I would suggest that it's worth mentioning that "Kaopectate" is named in the song "Rappers' Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang?
