If I grow fruits and veggies using this compost material, can it still be qualified as organic?

Interesting question! The bokashi bran is not certified organic however, there is very little bran used in the making of the bokashi compost. You will just be adding 1 or 2 heaping tbsps of bran for every 1″ of food waste so the percentage of bran (non-organic material) is very low. Plus the bokashi bran will break down and compost over time.

Whether this small percentage of non-organic material will mean that your fruits and vegetables are or aren’t qualified as organic will depend on the definition of organic.

I hope that helps. I would love to hear where you are located and how ‘organic’ is defined.
