What does Organic mean?

According to the USDA, foods labeled “100 percent organic” must contain (excluding water and salt) only organically produced ingredients.  What does that mean for you?  It means pure and natural food.  No pesticides or man-made chemicals.  Just good honest food.  One of the best things about organic food is that organic produce just tastes better!

Organics can fit into anyone’s budget, whether you are extremely health conscious or just beginning to find out more about your choices.  For a list of the top twelve must-have organic produce items, click on our link to “The Dirty Dozen.”
