Feeling a little confused about organic foods? Here’s a quick explanation of what makes them different from non-organic foods.
Organic foods are grown using only natural products such as compost and oils and so chemical fertilisers or X rays never come near the plants. Plants are grown naturally and are not modified in any way, shape or form to make them look prettier or last longer.
If an animal product is labelled as organic, it implies that the animals were raised in a natural, outdoor environment with access to natural, organic foods without traces of chemicals.
Because organic produce takes a bit more time and effort to produce, it’s usually more expensive than non-organic foods, but you can often tell by the taste that it’s in a league of its own. Be selective about where you buy your organic products and keep it local where possible so that you support the local farmers and keep your wallet happier!
