Frequently Asked Questions

What are the health benefits of organic foods?

Organic foods may not be healthy for everyone. There are certain health benefits to those who consume organic foods regularly.

Organic food does not contain artificial fertilizers or pesticides. It also doesn't contain fungicides. Organic produce is not grown with harmful chemicals that could pose a risk to human health.

Also, there are fewer additives that are used in processing. Organic products are more nutritious than those made from non-organic ingredients.

Studies have shown organic foods have more nutrients and antioxidants that conventionally grown fruits, vegetables.

Organic farming methods are more expensive than conventional methods but they can often produce better results. Organic farming increases soil fertility and biodiversity.

This helps prevent erosion and conserve water. Plus, because organic farms aren't treated with toxic chemicals, these farms typically require less energy and fuel.

People worry that organic foods will be more expensive than those made from conventional food. However, prices vary depending on where you live. For example, organic apples tend to be more expensive than traditional apples.

However, organic fruit is more affordable if you compare the price of a basket of both types.

So, should you buy organic?

It depends on you. If organic food doesn't appeal to you, you shouldn't bother.

You can still buy organic food if your preference is for good tasting food. Organic food is safer because organic produce is not grown by commercial growers who use pesticides and chemical fertilizers.

Organic agriculture conserves the environment and promotes biodiversity.


Which are the best organic vegetables?

Organic vegetables are the healthiest and most nutritious foods available to humans. They are the healthiest of all foods.

Organic produce is grown without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and GMO seeds. These chemicals can be dangerous to our environment as well as our health.

Organic produce also contains more nutrients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, enzymes, fibre, and essential fatty acids. They are healthier as we absorb nutrients more easily when we eat organics.

Organic vegetables taste delicious and are safe for you to eat. Consuming organic produce has no known side effects.

Every grocery store will carry organic fruit and vegetables. Organic fruits and veggies can be purchased at any grocery store provided they comply with USDA guidelines.


Why should I go organic?

Conventional agriculture has been linked to several health problems, including asthma, allergies, obesity, diabetes, cancer, birth defects, hormone imbalances, and other diseases. Healthy choices must be made when purchasing food.

Here are some tips from the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

Always purchase organic fruits, vegetables and other products whenever possible.

USDA organic labels are required for meat, poultry, eggs and milk.

Avoid processed foods that claim to be "natural" and "no additives."

Make sure you read through all the ingredients. If an ingredient isn't listed, it may be added during processing.

You should choose fresh meats rather than frozen or canned. Foods that are frozen or canned often have less nutritionally-rich ingredients, such as high fructosecorn syrup.


What is organic?

Organic meat means real food, grown without artificial fertilizers or pesticides. Organic meat also indicates that animals were not fed genetically modified food. The meat is safe to consume because it contains no harmful chemicals.

Organic meats are good for the environment. The pollution levels in our environment are reduced when we eat organic foods. We can also help wildlife by eating organic foods. Organic farmers do not often use toxic chemicals that can kill birds or insects.

Locally purchasing organic meats is the best way to make sure you are eating healthy and organic meats. Local buying helps to keep money in the community, rather than moving out of state. Local businesses often offer discounts to their customers by shopping locally. Buy local to save jobs and not send them overseas.


Statistics

  • As for organic meat, regulations require that animals be raised in living conditions that accommodate their natural behaviours (like the ability to graze on pasture), fed 100% organic feed and forage, and not administered antibiotics or hormones. (usda.gov)
  • According to a study performed by consumerreports.org, organic products, compared to non-organic products, ranged anywhere from 13 percent cheaper to 303 percent more expensive. (en.wikipedia.org)
  • When packaged products indicate they are “made with organic [specific ingredient or food group],” they contain at least 70% organically produced ingredients. (usda.gov)

How To

Organic foods: Are they healthier and more nutritious than conventional food?

Organic foods can be grown without the use synthetic fertilizers and chemical pesticides. They are grown in natural conditions and without the use of any artificial inputs like fungicides or herbicides. Cover crops, crop rotation, crop rotation, composting animal manure as well as recycling wastewater are all organic farming practices.

The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) was established in 2002 to regulate the production, handling, processing, labelling, sale, and distribution of organic products sold in the United States. NOP regulations make sure that organic agricultural product conforms to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Furthermore, the NOP rules require organic products to be free of banned substances such as pesticides residues and growth hormones.

The United States offers two certification programs for producers that want their products to be certified organic: one for farmers, ranchers and the other for manufacturers. Both programs require audits of operations each year to ensure that they are meeting strict standards. Many certifying agents offer this service, including CCOF Certified Organic Farmers & Ranchers (QA International), American Grassfed Association, and Quality Assurance International. These organizations offer third-party verification that farms adhere to strict guidelines about environmental stewardship and labour practices.

The USDA's Economic Research Service estimates that organic agriculture was responsible for $4.7 billion of 2013 sales. In 2013, organic agriculture accounted for $4.7 billion in sales. This represents a 23-percent increase over 2009. During this time, grocery store sales increased by 12 percent. Spending on organic produce was up 29 percent, but only 1 percent on meat, seafood, eggs, and dairy.

Organic food is more expensive, but consumers believe its quality is worth the extra cost. Consumer Reports found that 88 per cent of respondents would be willing to pay more for organic food if the nutritional value was higher. A Health Affairs study also found that organic food consumers are less likely to develop health problems such as diabetes, cancer, obesity, heart disease, depression, and other diseases.

Even though there is no evidence organic foods cause or treat diseases, some studies show that they can improve overall health by reducing pesticide and other contaminants exposure. A review of 31 studies that were published in 2010 found that organically raised beef has significantly lower levels than conventionally raised beef. Similar conclusions were reached in a separate analysis of 11 other studies published in 2012.

The Environmental Working Group released a report in 2014 that analyzed data from USDA's Agricultural Marketing Resource Center. They found that there was a decrease in foodborne illness due to E.coli, salmonella, listeria moncytogenes or campylobacter. After 2006, when USDA required stricter organic standards in animal raising for human consumption, the group noted that E.coli O157 was less common among children and adults.
