Midwest Bioprocessing Center earns USDA Certified Biobased Product label for two products

March 1, 2022 |

In Illinois, Midwest Bioprocessing Center, LLC has earned the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased Product label for two of its iActive Personal Care ingredients. The products, iActive FeruliShield™ Feruloyl Soy Glycerides (FSG-33), and Feruloyl Coconut Glycerides, (FCG-33) and are now able to display a unique USDA label that highlights its percentage of biobased content.

Third-party verification for a product’s biobased content is administered through the USDA BioPreferred Program, an initiative created by the 2002 Farm Bill (and recently reauthorized by the 2018 Farm Bill). One of the goals of the BioPreferred Program is to increase the development, purchase and use of biobased products.

The USDA Certified Biobased Product label displays a product’s biobased content, which is the portion of a product that comes from a renewable source, such as plant, animal, marine, or forestry feedstocks. Utilizing renewable, biobased materials displaces the need for non-renewable petroleum-based chemicals. Biobased products, through petroleum displacement, have played an increasingly important role in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that exacerbate global climate change.
