Certified organic food must be grown and processed according to the National Standards for Organic and Biodynamic Produce.
Organic food is:
regulated by certifying bodies with annual audits
processed without synthetic colours, flavours, preservatives, and other common additives
in greater harmony with nature using farming practices to protect soil, water, and air quality
safer for our farmers to produce due to the lack of chemical exposure
Certified organic covers pretty much every attribute you would expect in an ethically produced product.
It means free range, pasture fed, cruelty free, socially responsible and grown without GMO's, synthetic pesticides and herbicides, human-made fertilisers, hormones and antibiotics.
So why choose Organic?
"Organic dairy, eggs and meat comes from animals reared with the highest standards of animal welfare. Animals are given a quality of life that allows them to roam in the sun and fresh air in free range fields and pastures. Organically reared animals aren’t fed antibiotics or had their growth artificially enhanced with growth hormones. Natural breeding methods are used and live export is banned.
The benefits of eating organic are better health and less disease, which seems logical when the food has not been treated with pesticides, fertilisers, chemicals, additives or preservatives. The cumulative effect of taking in a cocktail of pesticide residues has been linked to decreased fertility, breast cancers, immune system problems and nervous system problems like Parkinson’s disease.
Various studies have found that organic food has higher levels of anti-oxidants, flavonoids (found in plants which help regulate allergens, carcinogens and viruses), omega-3, vitamin C and nutrients like iron, magnesium and phosphorus."
