Today, manufacturers use labels to appeal to consumers. Labels like “organic” and “natural” are both very popular purchase incentives. Yet, what are the differences between the two?
The label “organic” prohibits the use of synthetic pesticides, genetically modified ingredients, synthetic hormones, antibiotics, and preservatives. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulates this process to ensure the production upholds the set standards for high quality organic foods. If a product has been approved by the USDA, it will be given an approval stamp which guarantees that at least 95% of that product is organic.
However, there is a difference between something that is labeled as “organic” versus something that is labeled as “natural.” There are in fact no guidelines or regulations for what is considered to be natural, therefore a product can contain anything ranging from 2% natural ingredients to 100% and still get identical labels. Don’t let these labels trick you into purchasing something artificial!
Why you should eat organic foods.
Picture this: fueling a car with diesel instead of gasoline won’t be nearly as efficient if the car is designed for gasoline only. Your body functions just like a car — fuel it with the right nutrients!
There are many benefits from eating organically such as weight loss, healthier skin, and higher energy levels. Pack your bags and shop at your local farmer’s market for fresh and organic produce.
