Biosea Boost is one of 2 organic certified liquid fertilizer produced in the Philippines. OCCP is the official certification organizations who provide inspection and certification services.
Boost is grown and manufactured in the Davao region. The water quality of monitored regularly for biological and heavy metal presence. Every batch is monitored and tested.
Seaweeds are really good at sucking up chemicals in the water. Where we grow seaweed we test the water and the seaweed and we do not have detectable levels of lead, cadmium or mercury. We do not ship any product that has more than detectable levels. Why eat to be healthy but then ingest levels of toxic chemicals.
But in some areas and for some species they do concentrate and are used in water remediation. There is seaweed grown in the mouth of the Rhine River to extract out nitrogen, lead, cadmium to reduce the levels going into the North Sea.
Other seaweed is not harvested but washes up on the shore after storms. In contrast our seaweed is grown in the clean sea (monitored), harvested and processes.
All with the latest state of the art gate to plate tracking process and formally organically certified.
So be careful of seaweed products is grown in river mouths, or is not carefully monitored.
