Organic food refers to food items that are prepared according to the norms set by an organic certifying body. On an overall basis, organic food is prepared and processed without using any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or chemical preservatives.
Following are few of the benefits of Organic Foods:
- Enhances Immune SystemIt is a proven fact that organic food enhances the immune system and helps body fight against all odds present in today’s polluted environment. Genetically modified food may be an answer to take care of world hunger but certainly not the best option to take care of immune system for generations. Use of pesticides helps farmers in keeping crops safe from bugs and other natural environmental changes however not safe for human health. Hence organic foods produced without any abuse of field crops and plants are the safest bet for a healthy body.
- Tastes better than non-organic foodOrganic food is produced using organically and often sold locally, resulting in the availability of fresh produce in the market, which usually does taste better than produce that has been frozen, shipped, and transported across long distances.
- Prevents pre-mature ageingSince organic food is not prepared using chemical fertilizers, it does not contain any traces of strong chemicals and does not affect the human body in negative ways.
- Ensures safe and healthy world for future generationSince organic food is not prepared using chemical fertilizers, it does not contain any traces of strong chemicals and does not affect the human body in negative ways.
Organic food can be identified with the help of an organic logo on the packet. Companies, farmers, manufacturers, and suppliers, which follow all the norms set by a certifying body of their region, put a logo of that certifying body on their food items.
In-house manufacturing in remote villages: If the manufacturer and marketer of the product is same and has a manufacturing plant in the remote village away from pollution ensures that product/food item is authentic organic.
Traceability and transparency: if you can trace back till the farmer and his crop where seed was sown, grown, processed, packaged and transported till the end consumer. There is transparency in every operation which gives confidence that what one is buying is 100% organic.
