Utah-based Trace Minerals Research (TMR) has had its Utah Sea Minerals ingredient listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI).

“Adding Utah Sea Minerals to our offering of OMRI Listed products is another huge step for us,” said James Crawford, Bulk Sales Manager for TMR. “Now that Utah Sea Minerals is OMRI Listed, we have two ingredients we can offer manufacturers that they can use to fortify and enhance their organic products. Each complex is unique in its own way, but the benefit is that they both contain an all-natural mineral profile of over 72 ionic trace minerals that have been harvested from the Great Salt Lake.”

In addition to Utah Sea Minerals the company’s ConcenTrace ingredient is also listed by OMRI (since 2012). Although the ingredients are similar, Utah Sea Minerals is simply seawater from the Great Salt Lake that is naturally higher in sodium, said the company. Conversely, ConcenTrace is seawater that has gone through a proprietary concentration process that causes the sodium to ‘fall out’ so it’s 99.5 percent sodium free and more concentrated than Utah Sea Minerals. Crawford added that the main reason TMR wanted to add Utah Sea Minerals to its OMRI Listed offerings was because many manufacturers requested a higher sodium trace mineral complex.
