  • Does organic food taste better?

    Organic food tastes better as it is grown in well-balanced soil. So, healthy plants have a great taste. Try organic food and see the difference.

  • Why does organic cost more?

    Organic food doesn't always cost more. Some items may cost the same or even less than their conventional counterparts. As the demand for organic products increases, the cost will come down. Also, Organic farmers do not receive any subsidies like conventional farmers get on fertilizers. The price of organic food is the true cost of growing -

    The price of conventional food does not reflect the cost of environmental cleanups that we pay for through our tax.

    Organic farming is more labor and management intensive.

    Organic farms are usually smaller than conventional farms and so do not benefit from the economies of scale that larger growers get

  • How do I know if a product is organic?

    A label helps you to identify whether the product is organic or not. Usually, an internationally recognized body certifies the companies products. An organic seal assures consumers of the quality and integrity of organic products. Organic-certified operations must have an organic system plan and records that verify compliance with that plan.

  • Difference between organic and conventional grown foods?

    High nitrogen application to plant foods can increase crude protein concentration but decrease the nutritional value of that protein. Conventional fertilizing practices could possibly result in higher crude protein content but poorer quality protein than organic practices.

    There is considerable evidence from controlled experiments that some organic fertilizers result in lower nitrate concentrations in plants compared to conventional fertilization.

    The ultimate test of the nutritional value of food is its ability to support health, growth, and reproduction over successive generations of animals or humans. Evidence for increased disease resistance, productivity, or fertility of animals feeding on organically grown fodder is largely anecdotal.
