Ananas Anam receives USDA Certified Biobased Product label for Anam PALF pineapple leaf fibre.
Anam PALF has been certified as 99% biobased with the USDA Certified Biobased Product label, which provides transparency for consumers by clearly giving the percentage of biobased content contained within a product, like Anam PALF, on the product label itself.
A USDA Certified Biobased Product
The USDA Certified Biobased Product label is designed to promote the development and expansion of markets for biobased products. The label provides useful information to consumers about the biobased content of their product, showing the percentage of the product made from renewable resources, like plant, marine, or forestry feedstocks. The label confirms that the product or material contains a USDA-verified amount of renewable biological ingredients, as shown through independent laboratory testing.
The USDA Certified Biobased Product label verifies that Anam PALF is 99% biobased, while the remaining percentage is attributed to the minerals naturally present in plants. Due to our unique processing method, the pineapple leaf fibres are not chemically modified to create Anam PALF, and so these natural minerals can remain in the fibres, causing the characterisation method to identify this 1% as ‘non-biobased’.
