Conclusion

Introduction

The latest buzzword... organic. However, not all “organic” is the same. You’ve got certified organic, organic and natural.

What do they all mean? What should you know about them to ensure you’re on the right track to a healthier lifestyle?

Most people, when it comes to the word organic are a bit perplexed – confused by it. However, you may be surprised to learn that the premise behind organic is very easy to comprehend.

Most people, regardless of whether they’re talking about organic or natural, often stick to the term organic. Organic-based product means it’s just the way Mother Nature grew it. Think of it as growing vegetables in your garden and selling them to people at a lemonade stand your kids have designed.  You grew them just as Nature had intended – the natural way without chemicals or pesticides added to them.

What Makes Organic Products Costlier Than Non-Organic Products?

Going organic doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg, but the prices of organic products are higher than non-organic products. You know, the products that are filled with chemicals and preservatives. 

However, people can’t understand why something organic has to cost so much more. If something is all-natural, then surely it would stand to reason that not adding things to it would cost less, right?

Actually, think of it in this way: produce fields tend to be clumped together, which makes it harder to keep one field completely free of pesticides and chemicals. Not all a farmer’s fields will be free of pesticides. He may have one area be organic while another area is using pesticides. He has to ensure that the non-organic field chemicals don’t travel onto the organic field, tainting the product.

Certified Organic farmers tend to be stressed, knowing how expensive it can be to naturally produce products to meet that organic certification.  They have a burden on them to meet the guidelines set forth if they are to sell the produce at organic prices.

This is why the prices to produce organic foods tends to be much more than you see with other products.

There is no doubt how popular organic produce is getting, but there is so much behind the process – the growing and promoting – that it’s more than just a labor of love for organic produce farmers.

Organic farmers feel that they should work with Mother Nature, not against “her.” They believe the Earth will take care of the produce grown as it did in times’ past, ensuring food grows like intended and resistance to pests.

With the costs it takes for farmers to create organic produce, the extra cost has to go somewhere, which is the consumer. If you want the best product available without any chemicals or added preservatives, then going organic (natural) will be the best decision you make. Just be prepared to pay a little more for it.

Should You Really Choose Organic Produce?

You may be wondering if you really need to choose organic produce over non-organic? Ask yourself if you really need the latest gaming system or if you need a new pair of expensive shoes. You probably don’t need them, but that doesn’t mean you don’t WANT them.

The same idea applies to organic food, but instead of resonating from the “VAIN” part of our existence, it comes from the need to protect our health and taste buds.  The reality is that your body would prefer to have organically grown foods, but there’s no real proof that your body needs it. The only way to determine if organic is better for you than non-organic is to try it and see what happens with your body.

Listen to what your body is telling you. If you see that organic, natural foods are better for you, then that’s the way to go. Do you really need some group of scientists telling you that natural food is better for your body than non-natural food?

Of course, you don’t!

Are Organic Foods Considered Seasonal?

The answer to that question is yes. Organic foods are seasonal, meaning they grow when nature wants them to. And, when this happens, it means your body attains all the nutrients it needs to thrive and grow.

Since they are grown naturally, they don’t have much of an impact on the environment.

Eating seasonal fruits means local farmers have an increased chance of fighting against large corporations and inexpensive prices from foreign countries. It also means that the food you get will be fresher and healthier.

Organic produce is usually locally-produced, which is great for several reasons:

Money is being spent in your local community.

You’re supporting your local farmers and businesses.

You’re reducing your carbon footprint by buying local – you don’t have to worry about shipping containers, gas emissions, etc.

By buying local, you make everybody in the community better off... in the grand scheme of things.

However, more and more local farmers are unable to go certified organic but are still using organic methods to sell to the local community. These farmers just don’t have proof (documentation) that proves they are growing foods naturally and organically.

Be sure to talk with local farmers at the farmers’ market to see if they are using organic methods to grow their foods. Chances are most of them, if not all of them, are growing foods organically.

Fairtrade and Organic Foods: Why The Push?

It’s been noted that organic foods and Fairtrade should be combined to ensure a better community and environment. Most people are not that concerned about the environment when it comes to putting food on the table for their loved ones. This is why the push for organic foods to be Fairtrade is ongoing, especially so in developing countries.

Here’s the reality – everybody, no matter where they are from in the world, are concerned about their family’s health and well-being first and foremost. That’s just a given.  Fairtrade practices make that farmers can make a good living while bringing consumers organic products as much as they can.  This is a win/win situation for everybody involved.

What’s so wrong about that?

What would be best to go with – organic or non-organic? Perhaps it’s best to consider the kind of produce and how long they last if they’re organic compared to non-organic.

Chapter 1: Organic or Non-Organic Foods: What Are The Differences and Does It Matter?

____________________________________

There was a period of time when buying organic foods meant visiting a health food shop (think Natural Grocers or Whole Foods).

Today, most supermarkets (Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger and Harp’s) offers organic foods with their non-organic counterparts.

Does Going Organic Really Mean Anything and Should You Bother?

Organic means food that’s been naturally grown or farmed by farmers who want to do the following things:

Save natural resources such as water.

Reduce pollution such as using natural fertilizers over pesticides.

Practice rotating crops.

Organic-growing farmers are more about quality than quantity.

Non-organic produce growers will use pesticides and oil-based herbicides to expand the amount of food they can grow. They care more about the quantity than they do the quality.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA, for short) has come up with a system to classify food. Products must adhere to a strict set of guidelines to be considered organic.

These set of rules dictate how much water they can use, how to grow the products and how to handle them. If a food item has the USDA organic label on it, it means the food was produced by adhering to those USDA guidelines.

While the label is voluntary, most producers will use it to help them get more sales.

Totally organic produce such as eggs, vegetables and fruits are noted as being 100 percent organic and have the USDA seal on it. Foods that have more than one ingredient may still have the USDA organic label but only if it has at least 95 percent organic ingredients.

70 percent is the cut-off for being deemed organic.  If a product has less than that, it will not be stamped as organic by the USDA even if it has it organic materials in it.

Are Natural and Organic Interchangeable When It Comes To “Organic” Products

You may be wondering if the terms organic and natural mean the same thing. Well, not really. You have labels that state whole, natural food (peanuts) without hormones, but it should not be interchanged so lightly with organic. Organic means the food has to meet the USDA guidelines for growing and processing.

Which One Is Healthier; Non-Organic or Organic Foods?

So, if they’re not the same thing, one then has to wonder, which one is healthier. Based on a recent study, looking back at 50 years of scientific articles on the nutritional content of both non-organic and organic food, there was no real difference between them.

However, if you are to look at their differences, you have to understand the environmental issues, the use of food additives and using herbicides/pesticides. Some people like the taste organic foods. Plus, some others have allergic reactions to the added chemicals in food.

What are some negative aspects to buying organic foods over non-organic foods? They are:

Costlier.

Doesn’t keep as long (must be used quickly).

Doesn’t always look appetizing and is sometimes smaller in size.

Still, they need to meet the same quality and safety standards as other produce.

3 Key Safety Tips To Keep In Mind... Even When Buying Organic

It really does not matter if you buy organic or non-organic produce, there are still some safety tips to remember.

Purchase in-season fruits and vegetables, buying locally whenever you can. This will ensure freshness but also ensures your hard-earned money stays in the local community.

Carefully read the labels of your food. Even if a product claims to be organic, it doesn’t mean it’s not loaded with sugar, fat or sodium.
