What is the Definition of Organic Food?

Definition of “Organic” refers to food grown without synthetic pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, hormones, fertilizers or other synthetic or toxic substances.  No artificial flavors or colors have been added. Organic food does not include foods that have been irradiated or Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).

Organic food is produced by farmers who focus on using reusable resources and to conserve the soil and water so to ensure environmental quality for future generations.

Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones.

Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides, petroleum-based fertilizers, or sewage sludge-based fertilizers, bio-engineering, or ionizing radiation.

Organic foods of all kinds have nutritional characteristics similar to their conventionally produced counterparts. Essentially the same amount of protein, fat, carbohydrate, and dietary fiber. But taste so much better!

BUT…

Is all that extra and added chemicals good for your body? Is the nutritional value given through your food all to be taken away because of synthetic and toxic substances added by man?

MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE!!!When shopping for the finest, freshest ingredients, always purchase organic when possible, and choose locally grown organic vegetables and meat when you can.

It is not just your own family’s  precious life and health that will benefit,

but that of our rivers, lakes, and oceans, our land, the plant life, beneficial insects and animals, both large and small.

A simple choice made by you has such a large impact on us all!!

    This is excellent information folks! All so very true as well. I heard a program a week or so back about recyling our treated sewage that in some areas is being used; a lady who remembers being at a meeting in the 1950’s said the speaker told the crowd that human sewage is so high in salt content that using this will turn the ground sterile & that nothing would grow in it & it would eventually become desert. This is a common practice in some areas of our friends to the south of us & just think of all the prescription drugs that do not break down in the treatment process & we are the guinea pigs that consume the products; this is the greatest reason if for nothing else to purchase organic foods. Also the price is & obviously has to be higher as their costs to grow & water are much higher not to mention summer fallowing & crop rotation that normally does not happen. If we all become conscious of what we consume for our health (& not to mention our pets) the prices would come down as they can turn the profits back to the earth & production for us all.
