What is organic food?

Food items that are considered to be organic are the ones that have been grown naturally in other words, these food items were grown without using any kind of chemical fertilizers, weed killers and even pesticides or any kind of drug. This means that all those farmers who grow Organic Food make sure of the following:

  • They use only those pest killers that are natural such as bugs that feed on other bugs, fungus eating bacteria or plant oils and soap.
  • Natural fertilizers such as cow manure or compost are used.
  • Their animals have not been treated with antibiotics or growth hormones.
  • They don’t use GMO’s or genetically modified organisms.
  • They avoid using any kind of X-ray or irradiation rays that will kill animals or prevent the food from getting damaged.

Now that you know what Organic Food is all about, you need to keep a vital factor in mind. Don’t get swayed away by food products that use the words “natural” “hormone-free” “sustainable” and so on. Look for the organic seal.

Wondering what is the organic seal?

The USDA or the U.S. Department of Agriculture has made certain rules that are mandatory to follow in order to receive the organic seal.

If all the ingredients used in the food item is organic then the seal “100% organic” will be displayed. And if it is below 95% then the seal “organic” will be displayed. In case it is 70% then there will be no seal but the statement “made with organic ingredients” will be mentioned on the product package. And finally if the number is well below 70% then no claims will be made. Only the ingredients that are organic will be mentioned in the product package.
