Ask Your Nanny-Organic vs. Non-Organic

What is the difference between Organic and Non-Organic?

The difference is that organic, in some cases, like milk, can be healthier. Also, organic foods are thoroughly checked for pesticides to make it healthier and taste better. This also goes for cheese and other dairy products.




Organic foods must be certified and have the certifying company indicated. Organic food must meet standards as set out in the US Organic Food Production Act 1990 or in Canada the Organic Productions Regulations.

Organic farming takes into account the effect on the environment and works to function in protection of the land. Consequently, the soil is rich in nutrients, producing healthy plants. No harsh chemical pesticides are used. No genetically modified organisms or genetically modified foods (as they are sometimes called) are permitted. Irradiation is not used as a method of preservation. Hormones in the rearing of livestock isn't used. 

Organic food also limits permitted food additives. Keeping these to natural.
