Organic Means Organic.
All Intrinsic Organics (IO) products are certified organic because we believe that organic farming benefits consumers, farmers, and ecosystems. IO has a long history of supporting organic agriculture, and this commitment remains steadfast today. Our sustainable agrobusiness strategy seeks not only to reduce harm, but to create positive impact by regenerating the natural resources of our farm.
USDA certified organic foods are grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, and use of additives. To us at IO, Organic means Organic. We will not subvert or skirt the organic law but are committed to the support and adherence of the USDA rules. Organic producers rely on natural substances and physical, mechanical, or biologically based farming methods to the fullest extent possible. As with all organic foods, none of it is grown or handled using genetically modified organisms, harsh chemicals, or pesticide which the organic standards expressly prohibit.
Most of the world’s inulin supply is produced using non-organic crops and non-organic manufacturing methods. Non-Organic farming methods rely on the use of synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and harsh chemical weed killers. The manufacturing systems use strong chemical solvents, ion-exchange filtration, and carbon to isolate the inulin.
IO has worked diligently with the Idaho Department of Agriculture to maintain and exceed the USDA Organic Certification standards from farm production to final inulin manufacturing. Our goal is to supply the purest form of 100% organic inulin available anywhere in the world.
The unsung heroes of agriculture, the tiny but mighty bees work hard for our crop. Seventy-five percent of all crops grown for food rely on pollinators, mostly honey bees, for a successful harvest. Our organic practices prohibit the use of synthetic chemicals in favor of natural means of pest control and fertilization, but we also promote biodiversity with crop rotation. On our organic farm we provide over 500 acers of natural areas to provide habitat and diverse forage for bees. And the approach works, look at the happy bees working hard to pollinate our 100% organic Jerusalem Artichoke!
