Default Is horticultural Vermiculite the same thing?

Would the Vermiculite sold here (Forno Bravo Store) be considered the same/similar to horticultural Vermiculite sold at many nurseries...?

I hope so because that is what I used to insulate my oven. Got it from the feed store.

Yes, Horticultural vermiculite is the stuff you want. There is a silicone treated type used for insulation that isn't suitable.
