Organic vs. Natural





Organic foods are foods produced by organic farming. While the standards differ worldwide,

organic farming in general features cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster

cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.




Synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers are not allowed, although certain organically

approved pesticides  may be used under limited conditions. In general, organic foods are

also not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or synthetic food additives. There

is insufficient evidence to support claims that organic food is safer or healthier than conventional

food. Claims that organic food tastes better are generally not supported by evidence.




Put simply, organic farming is an agricultural system that seeks to provide you, the consumer,

with fresh, tasty and authentic  food while respecting natural life-cycle systems. To achieve this,

organic farming relies on a number of objectives and principles, as well as common practices

designed to minimize the human impact on the environment, while ensuring  the agricultural

system operates as naturally as possible.













So, along with the range of highly delicious fruits, vegetables and meats, modern  organic

products can, and do, include: Baby food, Wine made from  organic grapes, Beer, Yoghurt,

Cakes, Pastries, Bread, Breakfast cereals, Biscuits, Cold meats, Fruit juices, Tinned fruits and

vegetables, Prepared meals, Coffee, Tea.














natural food or ingredient of a food is not expected to contain, or to ever have contained, an

added vitamin, mineral nutrient or food additive.

What's the difference between organic and natural ? Isn't "natural food" just as safe and

healthy as organic food? Unfortunately, natural does not mean organic and comes with no

guarantees.

"Natural foods" are often assumed to be foods that are minimally processed and do not contain

any hormones, antibiotics or artificial flavors.

In the United States, however, neither the FDA nor the USDA has rules or regulations for

products labeled "natural." As a result, food manufacturers often place a "natural " label on

foods containing heavily processed ingredients.
