SALADO, Texas — Soil Regen announces Regenerative Verified™, a new scientifically rigorous process to validate labeling of food products grown and produced using regenerative farming practices. Using a two-step system of certified soil testing analysis, along with production management verification, this innovative process confirms and validates the use of the Regenerative Verified™ label. Soil testing analysis will be conducted by Regen Ag Lab and regenerative farming practices including but not limited to: cover crops, rotational grazing, mob grazing, reducing fertilizer inputs, reducing synthetic chemical inputs, diverse crop rotations, minimizing mechanical soil disturbance.
Recent studies suggest food grown using regenerative farming practices contain increased density of mineral micronutrients, higher omega-3 fats, and a better-balanced ration of omega-6 to omega-3 fats in beef and pork (Montgomery et al., 2022). This research supports Steffan et al., 2017, assertion that soil has a profound effect on human health. Furthermore, research indicates consumers are willing to pay a premium for food products grown using methods to improve water quality and reduce carbon footprints.
“Our Regenerative Verified™ process provides traceability, transparency, identity preservation, and increase profitability for hard working farmers while satisfying the consumer demand for nutritious food which is also good for the environment,” says Dr. Liz Haney, co-owner of Soil Regen.
Farmers, Ranchers, and food companies are encouraged to partner up with Soil Regen, the first company to offer Regenerative Verified™ with Regenerative Certified laboratory testing by contacting Liz Haney, Ph.D. – firstname.lastname@example.org or Russell Hedrick – email@example.com or by visiting www.agsoilregen.com
