Organic produce is nutritionally superior to so-called “conventional” produce, according to a comprehensive review conducted by researchers from the University of Aix-Marseille for the French food agency (AFSSA) and published in the journal Agronomy for Sustainable Development.

“This critical literature review indicates that organic agriculture, as developed until now, has the potential to produce high-quality products with some relevant improvements in terms of anti-oxidant phytomicronutrients, nitrate accumulation in vegetables and toxic residue levels,” the researchers wrote.

To be recognized as “organic,” a food product must be produced without the use of genetic modification or chemical fertilizers or pesticides, and must promote sustainable cropping methods. In the United States, organically produced meat and dairy must be raised without the use of synthetic growth hormones or antibiotics. Hormones and antibiotics are banned in animal production across the board in the European Union.

  1. I live in a village and work in agriculturing. We produce organic foods and i try to read everything about them.
    This information is very useful for me. I also found another useful guide about organic foods;

  2. This is true, especially since organic food isn’t sprayed with pesticides. More people should use organic bug sprays, such as Safer Brand’s Tomato and Vegetable Insect Killer, since it’s OMRI Listed and compliant for use in organic gardening.
    Here’s the organic bug spray I’m referring to:

  3. i think it’s pretty obvious that organic produce is clearly nutritionally superior.

  4. It’s simply healthier to consume natural crops. With GMO’s, you never know what they put into crops to grow them.

  5. I would like to voice my passion for your kind-heartedness supporting those people that must have help on this topic. Your real dedication to passing the solution all through came to be particularly interesting and have in every case encouraged some individuals much like me to realize their targets. The informative facts means much a person like me and far more to my office colleagues. Warm regards; from each one of us.
