All of the ingredients that we use in our Innocent Beans herbal coffee’s are sourced from certified organic farms. So this blog is all about our top 3 reasons to switch to organic food, and why it is better for us than non-organic food.
Basically, organic farming is the production of food without the use of synthetic chemicals or genetically modified components to enhance the farming process. Because of this it is better for the environment and more sustainable. People can be drawn to organic food for many different reasons, ranging from better taste through to concerns about contamination and environmental sustainability.
1. It’s real food that’s better for your health – Organic foods are made without synthetic colourings, preservatives, additives, GM ingredients or pesticides. Pesticides and Synthetic food additives are thought to be linked to symptoms such as allergic reactions, asthma, and ADHD.
2. It looks after our environment - Organic agriculture provides a basis for sustainable farming. By incorporating environmentally sensitive practices such as crop rotation, composting, biological pest control and irrigation management, issues such as soil erosion are avoided. Organic farmers are helping to repair and sustain our soils, waterways and our fragile environment by using long-term farming solutions that support natural ecosystems. The conventional, intensive farming practices exhaust the soil, depleting it of vital minerals and nutrients. The resulting soil degradation is the single biggest threat to sustainability
3. They taste better - Organic crops are grown in healthy, biologically active soils. While crops on organic farms tend to yield somewhat less per acre and often take longer to grow than crops on conventional farms, plants nurtured by soil on organic farms produce crops that often contain higher levels of important antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. And because organic foods are grown for longer, their water content is reduced and their mineral content is higher. This gives a richer, fuller taste to foods
So support your environment, reduce climate change and enhance the health and vitality of your family and those you love. Go ahead and indulge in sumptuous, tasty, organic foods and enjoy knowing you are helping to create a better future for our planet.
