Organic food is not a passing foodie fad, it is here to stay! The organic food trend has been on the rise for years now, with the growing concern for what’s good for you.
The list of benefits of organic food continues to grow, with number one being the delicious, intense flavour that makes all non organic foods pale in comparison. The soil quality produces stronger, healthier plants. Our organic heirloom tomatoes, like many.
Before we get in to the long, long list of why we love organic so much, let’s clear up what ‘organic’ actually means. Organic foods are grown without the use of any synthetic chemicals, pesticides, artificial fertilisers and not genetically modified.
So what does that actually mean? It means organic produce is better for your health! Organic food is free of toxins that are found in pesticides and other chemicals. Which also means that harmful chemicals are not running off into the soil or water supply so they are helping to preserve the environment. The side effects of genetically modified food still aren’t known. Be safe than sorry when it comes to genetically modified food and avoid it all together.
Studies have shown that organic foods actually have a higher nutritional content than non organic foods! Typically organically grown produce is higher in iron, vitamin C, magnesium and phosphorus. This is because the soil used in organic crops is managed with sustainable practices.
