Sometimes it can be difficult to decipher the facts in the conversation surrounding organic vs. non-organic food production. While it is always an individual choice of purchase, there are a few unfounded claims on the topic that you deserve to be aware of before determining which option is best for your family.
The bottom line is that organic foods aren’t necessarily healthier, safer or more nutritious just because they wear that label. In fact, the nutritional content is not altered in any way based on the methods in which it’s grown. The same can be said of food safety. Whether organic or non-organic, all foods must meet stringent health and safety regulations before being sold to consumers, including those of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). So no matter your decision to consume organic or non-organic foods, you can rest assured that it is healthy, safe and nutritious.
