Organic food is becoming more and more popular, which is a good trend overall. However, companies are trying to cash in on the popularity. Foods that aren’t truly organic have labels claiming they are.
At Keller Crafted Meats, we have worked painstakingly to make our processes fully organic - from beginning to end. In the next few blogs, we are going to share some insights that will help you avoid companies that are trying to take advantage of you by charging more for food they have labeled as organic.
- Fully understand the meaning of “organic”
- At its most basic, the term organic means that a product has been cultivated without the help of pesticides, dangerous fertilizers, drugs, synthesized chemicals, and hormones.
- Plant and animal agricultural products are strictly regulated, but products like soap are not as closely regulated.
- Sometimes, processed foods are called organic because they are made from organic produce. An example is organic baby food. These products will be free of many harmful additives.
- Know the signs of a legally organic product
- Look carefully for the following three indicators that you’re dealing with an organic product:
- It has been certified organic
- It has a USDA Organic Seal
- It has 95% or more organic ingredients’
- Some organic farms cannot afford the certification
- An organic certification is expensive, so some fully organic farms are not certified even though they meet all the requirements.
