We have probably all heard that eating organic food is very good for the health of the body. But what is meant by organic food? In general, organic or natural food has been produced without the intervention or consumption of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and genetically modified compounds. In fact, organic farming is a method of farming that does not use chemical fertilizers in all stages of planting to harvest, collection and packaging of agricultural products. Because the amount of nutrients and antioxidants such as flavonoids in organic foods is up to twice as high, the consumption of organic foods among Americans has increased by 17 to 20 percent in recent years.
At the beginning of the introduction of organic food, only vegetables and fruits were included in this category. Nowadays, organic foods have become more widespread and include many products such as vegetables, chicken and mutton, fruits and even dried fruit, eggs, milk and so on. Because organic food manufacturers follow very strict standards and guidelines, these products have a higher nutritional value due to not using harmful chemicals. In addition, organic foods have higher levels of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus.
Another question we may ask is how to distinguish organic products?
There are several ways to identify an organic product, including:
1- Review of global approvals
The world’s top organic products have various approvals, the most important of which are USDA approval and Bio EU approval.
Although the appearance of the product is not an exact criterion for its organic nature, usually the organic fruits are not too big, bright or lighter than usual. Their texture is fine and not too soft or hard. The size of the fruits is balanced and they have a natural and suitable taste and smell. Of course, the most obvious criterion for distinguishing organic fruits from non-organic fruits is their natural taste and smell. In addition, the skin of organic fruits is perfectly proportioned to the fruit and is not too thick.
