How Organic is it?

Organic, 100% organic, yup some of this is organic. Easy to see why we need a deciphering tool.  You are striving to do your best to make food choices that are best for you and your family, and the environment, so you choose organic. That is a great plan.  Sometimes it feels like a kick in the pants when you are feeling good about your purchasing choice, and find out it’s not all you thought it was.  Stick with the feel good that you are choosing  consciously, and continue to educate yourself.  It will cut down (but not eliminate) the surprise factor about what’s really happening with your food.

What does the organic label really mean? It tells you that organic meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. It is a promise to you that plant foods are produced without using most conventional pesticides. That your  fruit and veggies didn’t come to that lovely size and color with use of fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge, bioengineering or ionizing radiation.

This info-graphic is a straightforward explanation of what organic means to livestock and fruit and vegetables.
