A question often asked. How do I know this product is safe? I.e. can we be sure that the processes are ok and that there will be no foreign baddies in it? This seaweed is grown in the tropics / Philippines / somewhere foreign. I don’t trust the source.
Biosea Boost is organically certified and is recertified after 1 year to ensure the product continues to be produced under organic conditions.
The last thing we want is to sell a plant food product that can make plants not produce to their maximum. We, therefore, have taken all steps available from planting to selling to remove risks. Every batch number can be traced back to a GPS coordinate in the farming area.
- The seaweed is organically grown in the cleanest water we can grow seaweed. The Pacific Ocean stretches 13,000 km to the nearest landfall on the USA West Coast
- Seaweed is organic certified by the OCCP (Philippine organic certifying authority)
- We use a full paddock to plate system (AgKonect) to enable full traceability.
How to Test
Water Quality and Product Tests are undertaken on every batch
- Heavy metals – Lead, Cadmium, Mercury
- Iodine levels
Testing of nutrient levels is done at regular intervals and research is underway to understand variation during different seasons. The lab used may be the FPA Lab
