Defining Organic Food
Before we give you several reasons to switch to organic food, you have to know exactly what it is and why it’s different from non-organic food. Although the exact definition of “organic food” varies from grower to grower, there are three main components that most organic growers abide by to ensure that their products carry the “organic” label. They include:
- No synthetic or chemical pesticides
- No genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
- No fertilizers made from sewage or petroleum products
When it comes to organic meat sources, the rules are slightly different. Organic eggs, cheese, and meats can only come from animals that have a diet of organically grown feed. They’re not allowed to have growth hormones or antibiotics, and they have to live as they naturally would instead of being confined to tight living quarters.
