Many consumers are increasingly attentive to their diet. Sustainability, traceability, nutritional value, and clean labelling are focus points of food consumers. Conditions of plant-cultivation and animal breeding cannot be underestimated as drivers for food quality and safety. Therefore, many organic foods have become popular.
By organic we mean those plant-products, which have not undergone any chemical manipulation. Which have been growing without the use of chemical fertilisers or pesticides and obtained without the use of biotechnology (e.g. genetical modification). Only mechanical/physical changes/modifications are permitted.
Pesticides include different categories of plant protection systems like herbicides and insecticides. Thus, the absence of pesticides is an important parameter to verify the organic/biological origin of a food product.
Organic Lecithin production is audited and certified by specialised independent bodies.
The auditors regularly inspect the full supply chain for maintenance of organic conditions. They issue compliance certificates.
AgroHorizon Lecithin & Solutions has introduced Organic Lecithin into its supply portfolio. Particularly from soybeans. Those are processed in the EU and primarily cropped by contract growers in Central Asia (e.g. Kazakhstan).
