The Benefits of Organic Foods

The Benefits of Organic Foods 

People have grown more conscious of the food they eat and ultimately how these foods affect their health.  These days, you would hear of various dietary options.  You’d go to the market and it has become a habit to check the ingredients of foods and the contents before you buy them.  People have become more conscious of the words “organic food.” 

What are Organic Foods? 

Not all foods are organic foods.  Even health foods cannot be automatically called organic foods.  Foods must first meet specific criteria and standards to qualify as organic.  In the United States, the Department of Agriculture places the USDA Organic seal on certain foods that qualify as such. Basically, organic fruits and vegetables are grown without using pesticides, artificial fertilizers, waste or slush, and additives.  Organic animals, on the other hand, are animals grown without antibiotics or steroids. These are foods that are not genetically modified.  In effect, organic foods are more nutritious than majority of the conventional non-organic food products that you’d find in the market today.  They even taste much better.
