Buying Organic Food - some thoughts
by Webmaster, All4NaturalHealth.com
The process of buying organic food is not a difficult one, although it may seem a little daunting at first.
This has made buying organic food easier as more and more health food stores are being set up, and these stores usually stock up on their fair share of fresh organic produce as well as dry organic food products, such as bread, crackers, pastas, etc.
In addition, many 'normal' food stores and supermarkets are also beginning to provide a selection of such organic foods.
Besides availability, the variety of organic foods has also increased greatly. Just walk into any health food store and you will see what I mean.
These changes have made buying organic food not only easier and less of a headache, but also more fun and exciting.
Be sure to scrutinize the ingredients lists. Long chemical names, some of which are practically unpronounceable, should be avoided. Long ingredient lists should also be avoided, for they imply the addition of artificial flavorings, additives, fillers or preservatives.
Typically, the ingredients are listed in order of their proportion of the whole food product, from highest to lowest. So, if sugar or flour is listed as one of the first ingredients, I would be inclined not to buy a certain food product.
Also, be sure to look out for the relevant symbol or notice which indicates that a particular food product is certified organic.
Take note that
saying a food product is "natural" or "all natural" is very different from saying it is "organic".
You want to look out for organic certification; "natural" or "all natural" doesn't really mean very much.
This makes your ability to read and understand food labels all the more critical.
Make friends with these farmers and food sellers, and ask them questions!
