What gives companies the right to say ORGANIC on their label?
Companies can use the ORGANIC label only if they pass certification from a recognized certification board, like the Oregon Tilth or the newly spawned FDA arm of enforcing national standards for Organic Labeling.
Who checks that the information is true and correct?
There are good reputable certification boards that inspect and test farms for purity and chemical residue. Organic farms have to have not used chemicals for three years and, of course, not spray the plants with chemicals…and no sewage sludge based fertilizers can be used either.
Does organic food taste better?
Organic foods are the way back to health and youth.
