As a third party independent laboratory we assist organic farmers, processors, and certifying agents by testing products for chemical residues to verify that prohibited substances are not being used. Although we do not issue certifications directly, organic certification agencies often require records of testing to justify an organic claim. Product testing is an integral part in the organic certification chain. Let us help you verify your suppliers, check your products, or pinpoint issues that may be encountered in certification.
The USDA organic regulations allow some natural substances in organic farming while prohibiting most synthetic substances. Please reference the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances for additional information pertaining to specific commodities.
