The taste of Organic eating

The word “organic” in food consumption

The term ‘organic’ refers to how farmers process and raise their agricultural products. Organic farming applies natural fertilizers to feed soil and plants (compost), and no modifications are being made. No pesticides in production, weeds are controlled naturally (e.g. mulching), and insects are managed by the usage of trap and birds.

Environmental Benefits

  1. Reduce air, water, and soil pollution
  2. Increase soil fertility
  3. Decrease soil erosion
  4. Help conserve water
  5. Better for the birds, small animals and people that live nearby

Diet Advantage

  1. Fewer pesticide
  2. Usually fresh
  3. Livestock products aren’t given antibiotics, growth hormones and animal-by-products. Therefore, we have lower risk of acquiring mad cow disease, antibiotic-resistant-illness and develop allergies.
  4. Rich in nutrients– European study 2016 revealed that up to 50% nutrients, including Omega 3 are retained from organic milk and meat.
  5. GMO- free. Genetically Modified Organisms are plants and animals in which DNA has been altered for the sake of cross-breeding, or to make them pesticide resistant.

Economy Wise

  1. Much cheaper
  2. Money Directly goes to the farmer, or within the local community
  3. Uplifts agricultural jobs and market

Bear in Mind

  1. To Buy in season
  2. There are also organic foods which are not good for the health, like junk foods, baked goods, and desserts that are high in sugar, salt, fat and calories.
  3. Vigilantly Read the label
