A food must contain at least 95% organic ingredients to be labelled organic.
-fewer pesticides used in crops and no synthetic fertilizers and GMO's
-animals only fed organic feed only and raised without routine use of drugs like anti-biotics
-no artificial ingredients allowed in process foods unless they go through a rigorous review process and cannot contain artificial preservatives, colours or flavours.
There is no government regulation which means a product labelled Natural can contain pesticides and crops can be grown with synthetic fertilizers as well as GMO's. Animals can be raised with drugs like anti-biotics. Process foods can contain artificial ingredients, preservatives, colours and flavours.
long before it was cool to be a minimalist, live a sustainable life, become a zero waste warrior we just called it simple living or what some could not resist calling us....'those damn hippies....not much has changed in the years since except the wording...now some can not resist calling us.... 'those damn natural nuts'...hence the name Just Another Natural Nut!
