Quality aspect of organic food
Author(s): Richa Mishra, Alka Gupta and Ranu Prasad
Public concern about food quality has intensified in recent years and prompted heated debate about the integrity and safety of food. Demand for organically produced food has grown rapidly. To assess the accuracy of this statement, attention must be focused on those aspects of food quality that directly affect health – biological value and nutritional quality, though when comparing foods on these aspects alone, it should be remembered that they represent only a part of a wider concept of food quality. The FDA and the USDA clearly mention that non-organic food is as healthy as organic food. Studies are ongoing about a variety of other types of organic food that may have additional health benefits compared to the non-organic varieties. Organic Facts is a strong proponent of organic food; this article will explain which aspects of organic food are actually beneficial for your health, and which ones have been misrepresented in recent years.
