Understanding “Organic”
Organic farming is a technique that uses renewable resources and conserves water and soil to enhance environmental quality. Organic foods are grown, processed and packaged without the use of any chemicals. This farming method strictly uses organic seeds, fertilizers, compost, root simulators and organic pest control. Food processing practices protect the integrity of the organic product and disallow irradiation, genetically modified ingredients (GMOs) or synthetic preservatives.
The biggest benefits of Organic food consumption include but are not limited to:

• Higher nutrient value compared to its non-organic counterparts. Hence you derive more out of your organic food intake than you would from non-organic foods.
