Organic🌱Food – Useful Facts

Better for you 👏

By it’s very nature organic 🌱 food products contain less harmful chemicals like fungicides, herbicides and pesticides. The definition of organic 🌱 food is: food production without the use of chemical fertilisers, pesticides and other artificial chemicals.

Better for the world 🌍

Organic 🌱 food is mostly fresher than it’s more industriously produced cousin which is bizarrely termed “conventional” food production. Organic 🌱 foods do not contain manmade preservatives and produce is more often than not grown and farmed locally and comes with provenance and traceability.

Organic Farming – Why ? 🧐

Because of this natural production organic 🌱 food farming is better for the environment because the practice of organic 🌱 farming …

  1. Reduces soil erosion.
  2. Reduces pollution.
  3. Conserves water.
  4. Increases fertility of the soil.
  5. Uses less energy.
  6. Is better for wildlife and people.

As a result therefore, everyone should consider themselves a winner 🏆🏆🏆

It is also true that animals 🐑 🐟 and livestock 🐓 🐂 🐖 in general that are not injected 💉 with growth hormones or fed other animal by-products, often unrecognisably delivered as pellets from a sack – are naturally healthier 💓 not least because they are moving around in a more natural habitat.

Use of antibiotics 💉 for some, whilst an admirable intention for the wellbeing of animals also raises the risk of over-use and the creation thereby of antibiotic 💉 resistant bacteria ☢️. It is widely acknowledged that milk 🐄 and meat 🐂 from animals that have been organically 🌱 raised and farmed have higher ⬆️ levels of nutrients such as Omega 3 fatty acids.

Omega 3 fatty acids are import for a normal and well functioning metabolism, they are good for the eyes, good for the brain and can help reduce heart disease 💔.
