The Truth Behind Organic Products

The boom of organic products and natural foods is at its all-time peak. Proof of it is the fact that in almost every supermarket there are sections exclusively devoted to organic food as well as the wide proliferation of natural products stores in different neighborhoods around the world.

Do you eat organic food or haven't you ever tried it? In any case, today we show you all the truth behind the organic world and its benefits to your health.

What does 'organic' mean?

'Organic' involves biological compounds, whereas 'inorganic' implies the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial agents.

That is, organic products don't contain pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or oil-derived fertilizers.

What's the difference between organic products and all non-organic products?

The difference between organic products and all non-organic products lies in:

Genetic modification: in most countries, genetic modification in eco-friendly foods isn't allowed. Conventional foods can be genetically modified.

Exposure to herbicides, pesticides, and synthetic fertilizers: organic foods are grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers.

Synthetic growth hormones: Organic livestock can't be supplied with growth hormones. Conventional livestock are fed with these hormones. They are also given antibiotics.

Livestock care: organic livestock have outdoor access. The rest of the livestock suffer in factory farms.

Preservatives and flavor enhancers: ecological products don't contain preservatives or flavor enhancers.

Heavy metals and contaminants: organic products mustn't contain traces of heavy metals or other contaminants that exceed standards set by FDA.

Products containing USDA seal comply with the strictest quality standards.
