Organic Fresh Foods provides users with the information they need to live an organic lifestyle
What are organic foods? What are healthy foods? With the onset of large-scale commercial farming, these are the types of questions we find ourselves asking these days. Repeatedly the news comes out with stories of salmonella outbreaks in our fresh vegetables, E. coli in our milk, and mass recalls of our pet food. It is no wonder we are looking for healthier food.
So, what is organic food? What does organic mean? Organic means anything which meets the certifications as set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for that product. In other words, organic tomatoes are tomatoes which are grown in such a way that they meet the USDA standards for being organic. These standards can be found at: http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/nop.
Organic food requirements can be difficult to meet. For example, organic crops can only be sprayed with organically approved pesticides. Also, absolutely no antibiotics can be used in any food animal throughout its entire lifetime.
Being a responsible consumer means that we will do our own research into the food we eat to be sure that we agree with how it is being produced. The more we do that, the more we will find that organic food is healthier than conventional food in most cases.
