We'll be getting a tiny bit scientific here, but we'll keep it short!
Many of you might have heard of it before or not: ROTENONE
"Rotenone is an odorless, colorless, crystalline isoflavone used as a broad-spectrum insecticide, piscicide, and pesticide. It occurs naturally in the seeds and stems of several plants, such as the jicama vine plant."
So, why are we talking about rotenone in the first place? Well, simply put, many people believe they should avoid jicama due to it containing rotenone.
The misconception of jicama containing rotenone lies in really understanding where it naturally develops, and this is ONLY in the seeds and in the stems (which aren't edible). The substance does not develop on the bulb or root, meaning the jicama itself. Therefore, when you eat your jicama there is no trace of rotenone on the edible tuber whatsoever.
Also, besides the natural development of the substance, Xica doesn't use any pesticide containing the substance or any other harmful agents in every single jicama crop. All of our jicama products are NON GMO certified as well and follow the highest quality standards.
All we have to say is, go eat all your favorite Xica jicama products with no worries at all! ONLY SUPERFOOD LEVEL BENEFITS!
