Organic Baby Leaf salad: what makes it so special
Baby Leaf salads farmed using organic or integrated farming methods look similar, but it is what you don't see that makes them different.
Discover the differences between organic and traditional baby leaf salads.
Organic baby leaf salads and integrated cultivated salads are displayed side by side in supermarkets. At first glance they look the same, but their prices are different.
Because in the organic baby leaf salad bags you find the result of an even more accurate and selective work. Let’s discover it together.
No plant protection products are used when growing organic baby leaf salad, and it is very important to identify untreated seeds that are naturally able to prevent parasites and diseases on their own.
At OP Isola Verde the varietal selection activity is a meticulous task, which is performed continuously by our Research & Development office and allows us to find increasingly resistant seeds, season after season.
Organic Baby Leaf salads grow in controlled terrain and are fertilise with selected manure.
Before switching from integrated farming to organic farming, the soil needs about 2 years rest, a period in which specialised agronomists monitor its composition in order to grow 100% healthy baby leaf salads.
There are years and years of studies and technical evaluations in every bag of Organic baby leaf salad to guarantee a controlled and safe product.
In order to be defined as Organic, a batch of Baby Leaf salad must undergo strict controls that guarantee its integrity.
These controls involve the product, the work cycle and the instruments used. They are carried out by specific certification bodies that support the technical staff in the continuous analysis of product unlocking, laboratory analyses that check their health and allow the continuation of the production process.
The varietal selection makes it possible to plant stronger baby leaf salads, but this does not always protect them against diseases and parasites.
In the event that a batch is damaged, it is discarded in its entirety to guarantee healthy and natural baby leaf salads. This painstaking sorting means that not all the baby leaf seedlings are collected and distributed.
In fact, when you choose an Organic baby leaf salad, you can be certain that you only serve the very best!
