Around the world, AIM offices frequently receive the question as to whether or not products from The AIM Companies™ are organic.
Here is the answer: AIM products are grown under organic standards.
For example, crops of barley grass are cultivated without the use of pesticides, herbicides or fungicides.
Young barley grass also involves other organic practices, like crop rotation. As well, some of their ingredients are certified organic, such as the seed oils in AIMega®.
At the same time, AIM has not pursued organic certifications because it would greatly increase product prices. Besides, there is much more behind the scenes of organic certification.
According to agricultural scientist, Steve Savage,
… surveys of organic conducted by the USDA and by Canadian Food Inspection Agency found un-approved residues in at least 40 percent of samples 1.
In other words, organic certification does not require further testing for chemical residues of pesticides or herbicides.
The difference between an organic product and an AIM product is once a field has been organically certified, products produced from it are not tested to the standard that The AIM Companies™ tests their products.
AIM takes quality assurance to a new level, testing for the absence of more than 300 pesticides, herbicides and other chemical residues.
The testing does not end there.
AIM also checks for microbiological (bacteria) safety, heavy metals and several other nutritional markers.
AIM also ensures the absence of residual cleaning solvents in over twenty-five different classes. These practices ensure only the highest quality of products for AIM Members.
