Jun 9th 2015 at 10:14 PM

Organic food is worth that extra cash but it doesn’t create a huge dent in your pocket after you realize that all you have been opting for is safer, more nutritious and healthier food. Talking about the staples of your diet, it can’t get better with some of the amazing payoffs that are going to surprise you. Benefits of organic food are myriad and they have a positive impact on your body on the long term but only if you have been picking the best and buying from the right place. So, how you can save more on food and yet continue consuming the tastier and healthier food? Read on.

How to identify the real organic food?

Make sure that the organic food products you are buying are ‘real’ and the best way to identify them is to look for the USDA organic seal. Even if they have words like ‘made with organic ingredients’ written on them, they are good to go with. You can be sure that the food you are buying here is at least 95% organic in nature. In a nutshell, they would have come from farms that:

· Focus on conservation, prevent soil erosion, focus on soil building and rely on practices such as crop rotation and manure management.

· Do provide livestock pasture.

· Ensure that the animals are fed on 100% organic food.

· Maintain records of all the operations performed during farming and are inspected on a regular basis.

· Are not engaged with use of antibiotics and hormones in animals.

If you are opting for the right kind of organic food, you must know and assure that it:

· Doesn’t contain harmful pesticides and is a non-genetically modified food.

· Doesn’t engage feeding of drugs to organic animals since organic farming never includes use of antibiotics or harmful pesticides.

· Is healthy for consumption as the organic crops are never fertilized with harmful chemicals, coal waste, contaminated sewage waste or toxic products.

· Is not ‘irradiated’ and does not include harmful bacteria that cause illness. Even organic chicken is ‘salmonella free’ or has reduced campylobacter.

· Is safe because animals in organic farming are not fed with animal remains, blood or harmful manure or even arsenic.

Organic foods are worth your investment, particularly the useful Organic Box in Singapore as they come with huge benefits for health. Before your start purchasing organic food on a regular basis for consumption or for Well Wishes Singapore or farewell gifts, do some research, particularly before shopping online. You can also join a food cooperative or buy shares in some community supported agriculture program.
