Organic Labeling – What Does It Mean?
There are many reasons why people choose organic products over conventional ones. Buying organic food can taste better than conventional food. Buying organics means less toxins in your body, for your family and in the environment. Buying organic products helps to re-build healthy soil and promotes biodiversity as organic farms seek the help of beneficial insects and become havens for animals and birds creating a balance of nature.
No matter your reason for buying organic products, making sense of labeling can be a challenge to consumers. The USDA has put in place a National Organic Program that ensures strict adherence of policies and regulations in order for a product to use the Organic seal on labeling. When the product you are buying is a fruit or vegetable (in other words a one ingredient food) the label “organic” is pretty clear. But when the food you are buying has many ingredients it becomes more complicated to understand what you are buying.
For a packaged food or supplement to display the USDA’s Organic label, it need only have 95% organic ingredients. Furthermore, for the label to say “Made with Organic Ingredients” it need only contain 70% organic ingredients.
