What Are Organic Foods?
Organic foods are any type of fruits, vegetables or animals that are unprocessed and unrefined, or that are grown and reared without the use of algaecides, herbicides, insecticides, bactericides, fungicides, antibiotics, antibiotics, growth hormones, or synthetic chemicals. Organic reared animals are fed a very healthy well balanced diet and are not genetically modified.
During organic production certain non-organic fertilizers are used. But these non-organic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are restricted and only used as a last resort and are not as harmful to our health and environment as the ones used during the production of Non-Organic Foods.
What Are The Advantages Of Eating Organic Foods?
Eating Organic Foods is a great way to improve and maintain ones health, while at the same time contributing towards protecting our environment from pollution. Aside from the health benefits that one receives when eating Organic Foods, the methods used during the production of Organic Foods are environment friendly. They do not consist of dangerous fertilizers and pesticides that are harmful to the soil and our environment. Therefore they leave the soil fertile and help in the preservation of insects and other small animals.
Contrary to popular belief that Organic Foods only come in the form of fruits, vegetables and livestock, there is a wide variety of foods that fall into the Organic Foods category such as beef, poultry, fish, pastas, sauces, vegetables, fruits, fruit juices, vegetable juices, frozen meals, soups, cereals, grains, nuts, chocolate, cookies, bread, dairy products, sugar, honey, syrup and wine.
Organic Foods are processed without the use of artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, hydrogenated fats, trans fats, saturated fats, additives or artificial preservatives. As a result of this, Organic Foods taste a lot better than Non-Organic foods because they contain natural flavors that have not been altered in any way by the use of synthetic chemicals.
Non-organic Foods on the other hand are processed with large amounts of sodium, sugar, additives and artificial preservatives in order to make them look and taste more appealing to the consumer and in order to extend their shelf life. The nutritional value of Non-Organic Foods is greatly altered by the kind of processing the food undergoes and because of this, essential vitamins, fiber and other healthy nutrients are lost. In an effort to replace the lost nutrients, synthetic vitamins and minerals are added instead.
Organic Foods contain more nutrients, are richer in vitamins, higher in fiber, minerals, and essential fatty acids than Non-Organic Foods. They also tend to be more filling because of their high nutritional value. Non-Organic foods on the other hand tend be less filling because of their low nutritional value. As a result of being over processed and filled with sugars and salts that are highly addictive, Non-Organic foods tend to leave you craving for more food, which often leads to over eating.
Organic foods are not loaded with potentially harmful synthetic chemicals, additives, and pesticides which when consumed are digested and stored in human bodies. It's a well known fact that pesticides in food have been linked to many diseases such as Cancer, Alzheimer's, Some Birth Defects, Obesity and Excess Weight. According to recent studies organic foods are actually better for fighting a lot of these chronic health problems that plague our society.
