What Are Organic Foods?

“Organic foods” refer to items grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Organic foods can be single pieces of produce like apples, multi-ingredient products like crackers, or refer to animal products where the animal was fed organically-grown grains and not given antibiotics. Organic foods are eco-friendly, though pricey. Unless you purchase organic foods from a local farmer, these non-toxic items will cost considerably more than conventionally-grown foods. It’s up to you to determine if the benefits outweigh the costs. Either way, organic foods are part of a booming industry.
