GC-MS Amatsunawa Tossa

Statement

High Grade-Clean Batch Grade 1 corchorus olitorius Tossa yarn without Jute Batching Oil, coated using Tapioca starch, used in Amatsunawa’s Tossa ropes.

Because of the variety’s hardiness to insect damage and root rot disease, anti-mosquito insecticides and fungicides have not been required, and bio-insecticides reduced to 0.001%. Cholesterol free vitamin A, D, and omega 3, 6 component fortified 100% GMO-free soybean oil is completely odourless, clear; very pale yellow. Since 1996, no rancidification has been observed by the lab, or reported by customers.

Analysis shows 0.012% rheum palmatum [Chinese rhubarb] bio-propagator to help saplings against disease and promote early growth, plus 0.001% bio-insecticide. None represent negative effects, and the product is therefore considered 100% biodegradeable; environmentally friendly, sustainable, and Food Grade.
