Definition of Organic Food

What is Organic Food?

5 Organic Food

There is an accelerating demand for organic foods. But what exactly does organic food mean? I did a little research and found a definition on Wikipedia:
“Organic foods are foods produced by methods that comply with the standards of organic farming. Standards vary worldwide; however, organic farming in general, features practices that strive to foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. Organizations regulating organic products may choose to restrict the use of certain pesticides and fertilizers in farming. In general, organic foods are also usually not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents or synthetic food additives.”
That makes it clearer to understand. But there is much more to explain about Organic Foods. So my next upcoming blogs will tell you more about that issue and where I find healthy food. Keep tuned in to hear more about this issue in my blog.

    I am further delving on this issue of what organic really is. Organic food is authentically chemical free. This includes the soil it grows in to the herbicides and pesticides used on the plant. However, organisations are unwilling to ban pesticide use completely due to the unsustainable procedures of organic farming. Pesticides are used to enhance the life span and properties of the produce. Sometimes this results in farmer’s trying to achieve the traditional agricultural yield per area of land via falsely labelled “organic” processes. The organisations’ priority is the farmer’s (and their) profitability. Little to no thought is given to the impacts of these chemicals on consumers!
