Bio-Based and Natural

Natural Soy Products are naturally derived from renewable resources. They are bio-based and are primarily made from soy, as well as other citrus, vegetable, and seed oils.

Natural Soy Products have been tested by Iowa State University using conventional radiocarbon analytical methods and determined to have bio-based content ranging from 61 to 97 percent.

Natural Soy Products are listed in the USDA BioPreferred catalog of bio-based products. BioPreferred is a Federal program that aims to increase the purchase and use of bio-based products. Bio-based products are made from biological or renewable agricultural materials like plant, animal, marine or forestry ingredients.

Made in the USA

Natural Soy Products are made from domestically grown crops by American farmers. The products are manufactured and packaged by American workers, primarily in Brooklyn, Iowa.

Effective and Powerful

Natural Soy Products are formulated with the strength to tackle industrial projects, but also with the safety to use in the home.

The natural characteristics of soy make an excellent solvent with a kauri-butanol (KB) value of 58. Soy is also compatible with other organic solvents and can be used to formulate many types of products.

A few examples of Natural Soy Products performance:

BBQ Grill Cleaner was tested by the Wall Street Journal and determined to be the most effective product, even compared to traditional, toxic products.

Penetrant Lubricant proved to have greater lubricity than WD-40 in laboratory tests conducted by the University of Northern Iowa’s National Ag-Based Lubricants Center.

“In a recent test, we found the most natural product [Natural Soy Products BBQ Grill Cleaner] worked the best. This soy-based product cleaned just as well or better than the less-natural ones, and didn’t have the noxious odor.” Wall Street Journal, June 21, 2007
