How do you know if it is actually Organic?
Companies must also ensure that post-harvest facilities and processing and handling facilities are also certified to the federal organic standards. Once an operation is certified, they all go through annual reviews and inspections to ensure the standards are continuing to be met. You can find this logo on any product that is exclusively produced using organic methods and contains only organic ingredients, as well as containing 95% organic ingredients:
How is Organic food grown?
Organic farmers use practices such as crop rotation, cover crops, and dense planting to enrich the soil in which they grow their crops. This allows them to stay away from toxic and persistent pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic nitrogen fertilizers. Doing this also increases biodiversity and decreases their impact on the environment. In order to earn organic certification, the land must not have used any of the prohibited materials for the last three years.
Why you should go with Organic products:
Organic agriculture protects environmental health and strives to improve it by reducing our carbon footprint and combat climate change since there is no use of petroleum-based fertilizers. According to the Organic Trade Associate, it reduces pollutants in groundwater and social erosion.
It is also scientifically proven that Organic products are better options for your health. Organic crops actually have up to 69% higher levels of antioxidants! Because of the absence of pesticides and fertilizers, plants boost their production of the phytochemicals (vitamins and antioxidants) that strengthen their resistance to bugs and weeds.
