    10 Things You Need to Know About Organic Food-food73810.jpg

    There are several reasons that people are going organic and one of the first is the loss of trust on manufactured substances.

    Most of the products found in supermarkets are packaged and promise content that is healthy, the truth being very different. So,organic food turns out to be a boon for people who prefer healthy eating. Read on to know more:

    1. No Chemicals

    First, let’s define organic. Organic food, as the name suggests, is produced with the use of natural fertilizers. In most of the products that tend to be 100% organic, the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides is nil. In some others, it is brought down to a minimal level.

    2. Saving Water

    Organic foods promote the use of natural farming procedures. These eliminate the chances of water pollution because of harmful chemicals, thereby saving water.

    3. Balancing the Ecosystem

    Organic farming supports biodiversity in all its forms. The flora and fauna get a major boost in areas where organic farming is practiced. A lot of natural habitats like wetlands have been restored because of organic farming.

    4. Going Healthy

    Organic, farm-fresh vegetables and fruits retain healthy nutrients. It has been found that a fresh picked fruit from an organic farm is richer in minerals and vitamins as compared to any other produce in the market.

    5. Developing the Soil

    The process of crop rotation and different forms of farming help the soil build its nutrients naturally. This also helps in holding the soil and reduces erosion.

    6. The Taste

    Any organic produce tastes better than a product of intensive farming. The reason behind this is that the farming is done in a natural surrounding with no artificial substances used for growth or flavour enhancement.

    7. Supporting Farmers

    A fact less widely known is that organic farming is less stressful for farmers. If taken up on a large scale, organic farming can curb major health hazards on a rather large scale.

    8. Community Building

    The farmers’ community in rural areas and on organic farms helps build healthy community practices. This also supports knowledge sharing about agriculture.

    9. Just Dairy

    The organic dairy products do not contain passed-on antibiotics used on animals and poultry.

    10. Affordable

    Contrary to the belief that organic products put a dent in the pocket, they are affordable products to use. However, paying a little extra for one’s health should be an acceptable thing to do.

    The facts shared above about organic foods are now universally acknowledged. People are gradually realizing the importance and health benefits of such food. Learn more and get wiser about your eating habits too!
