Organic vs. Natural

Updated: Sep 9

Is Sake High! organic or natural? With so many options at the grocery store it’s important to know what ingredients are in your beverages and where the ingredients are sourced. And how do you know if what’s in your glass is clean, organic, or natural? Here’s the facts and why organic is not always the best option.


Is Organic Better?

Let’s start from the beginning. Organic foods are grown without artificial pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides. Organic meat, eggs, and dairy products are derived from animals that are fed natural feed and not given hormones or antibiotics. Organic is strictly regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) and FDA. It costs tremendous amounts of money to go through the organic process because you have to hire a licensed agent to approve everything from farming practices to the copaking to the warehouse. To go through the organic certification process is costly, especially for small businesses, breweries, and start ups like Sake High!. Many small businesses, breweries, farms, and startups don’t pay the certification fees until they grow bigger and have the money to do so. Still, small businesses and breweries like Sake High!, still care about sourcing its ingredients with intention and avoiding hormones, antibiotics, and preservatives.


Is Sake High! organic?

Sake High! emphasizes quality from start to finish but it is not organic due to the steep fees. It’s costly to send an organic certified agent to Japan to the farm where the rice is grown and to the brewery to oversee all brewing practice and techniques,
