Glossary: Certified Biobased Product

is a USDA program that provides minimum percentages of biobased content for certain products. USDA has set no minimum biobased content requirements for finished mattresses, but has set a 12% minimum biobased content for “Bedding, Bed Linen, and Towels.”  Source: 7 CFR § 2902.17 (2011).  USDA considers finished mattresses to be a complex product for which it may define a minimum biobased content limit at some point in the future.
