The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. While the regulations vary from country to country, in the U.S., organic crops must be grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, bioengineered genes (GMOs), petroleum-based fertilizers, and sewage sludge-based fertilizers. That’s why it’s quite hard to find Organic Bakery Supplies in North America.
What does “organic” mean?
Organic livestock raised for meat, eggs, and dairy products must have access to the outdoors and be given organic feed. They may not be given antibiotics, growth hormones, or any animal by-products.
Why buy organic bakery supplies?
How your food is grown or raised has a major impact on mental and emotional health, as well as the environment. Organic foods often have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally-grown counterparts. People with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives often find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods.
Organic products contain fewer pesticides. Chemicals such as fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides are widely used in conventional agriculture and residues remain on (and in) the food we eat.
When eating organic products, the food is usually much fresher because it doesn’t contain preservatives to make it last longer. Taste is subjective, but you’re more likely to get a fresher flavor with organic. Organic foods don’t contain artificial preservatives [insert link to no preservatives page], so they sit on the shelf for less time, and consumers get a fresher, better tasting product.
Prepared organic foods are really where a taste difference comes in. Organic foods don’t contain chemical fake flavors, so the true taste of the food shines through.
Organic farming is better for the environment. Organic farming also produces reduced pollution, conservation of water, reduced soil erosion, increased soil fertility, and uses less energy. Farming without pesticides is also better for nearby birds and animals, as well as people who live close to farms.
Organic food is also GMO-free. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), or genetically engineered (GE) foods, are created when a plants DNA has been altered in ways that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding. Most commonly in order to be resistant to pesticides or to produce an insecticide.
