WHY ORGANIC

Why Organic?

Once upon a time all food was organic, there were no harsh chemicals used and our soil was rich with nutrients. Unfortunately, over time as production processes have changed and chemical have been introduced depleting soils of vital nutrients and poisoning our food supply.

ย 

The decline in the health of our friends and family over the years can be directly attributed to stress. When the body is stressed, it is more susceptible to chemical stress and that come from our environment and the food we eat. When we eat non organic food, we are not only harming ourselves and our future generations but also the environment we live in. We must vote with our food to let the powers that be know it’s not ok to poison our land, water and bodies.

Our soil contains critical microbial life that typically gets destroyed when crops are sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and so on. Without these synthetic chemicals in the soil, organic crops can extract the healthy minerals and nutrients they need from the ground, leading to more vitamin-rich food.

Organic always means:

  • Itโ€™s more nutritious. Studies have shown that organic food contains more vitamins, minerals and micronutrients than conventionally grown food.
  • There are no harmful pesticides used. This means no residue on the food you are eating and the farmers are not exposed to constant chemicals – and neither is the earth!
  • There are no artificial additives. Organic produce has no artificial ingredients, chemical flavourings, MSG or preservatives (including sulphur dioxide).
  • It tastes better! The careful organic farming practices that emphasise quality over quantity, the better welfare of animals and the lack of any filler ingredients allow the natural flavours of the food to shine through.

Is spray free organic?
No. Not even close. While the produce may not be sprayed with harmful chemicals, the seeds may be dipped in harmful chemicals and genetically modified. There is no control over what has been done to the soil or if the produce is genetically modified. If something is labelled โ€œpesticidefreeโ€, a farmer may not have used synthetic herbicides or insecticides, but may have used genetically modified plants or seeds. Spray free also only means until it hits the shelves and then they are free to spray with anything that extends shelf life.

Does apple cider vinegar work to remove chemicals?
It has been rumoured that apple cider vinegar can wash away the chemical residue on the surface of your produce and while this may be true, it doesn’t change the fact that the food has been grown in nutrition depleted and chemically laden soils.
