BIO products in a supermarket

Do you know what you eat?

Let's learn together!

What are bio products?

In general, organic products are those products made without the use of chemical substances, without genetic intervention and in harmony with nature and the environment. Typically, bio/organic/organic products are those products certified to this end by a certification body.

What is Organic/Bio Certification?


From a legal perspective, organic certification is the certification process for agricultural products or other types of products related to agriculture: seeds, meat, processed foods, dairy, etc.

The decision to eat healthy could be the basis of a healthy life. Beyond eating fruits, vegetables, whole grains and good fats, it is a question of eating food safely, preserving it properly, and persevering in maintaining a healthy diet. The way in which food is grown or grown (both from plants and animals) has a great impact on health and the environment.

The term organic refers to how agricultural products are cultivated and processed. For foods to be considered and labeled as organic, they must meet a number of specific requirements. Organic crops should be grown in soils where there are no added chemicals. Farmers should not use synthetic pesticides, genetically modified organisms or petroleum based fertilizers or sewage sludge.

Studies are insufficient in this direction. Some research suggests that on average organic fruit and vegetables can contain slightly higher levels of vitamin C, minerals, phytonutrients and antioxidants than others. However, other analyzes revealed no nutritional difference between organic and non-bio foods.

Organic foods offer a variety of advantages. Some studies show that they have a higher content of antioxidants than those that are conventionally grown. In addition, people who have allergies to some food, chemicals or preservatives have found that their symptoms have diminished or even disappeared when they only consumed organic food. Organic foods contain fewer pesticides. Pesticides are chemicals (fungicides, herbicides, insecticides) widely used to grow in conventional agriculture. Pesticide residues remain on commodity food, which reaches the final consumer.

Children are the most vulnerable to exposure to pesticides because of their less developed immune system, the body and the brain are still developing. Exposure from a young age to these substances can cause developmental delays, behavioral disorders and motor dysfunctions. For pregnant women, pesticides can pose a danger, as they add extra stress to organs already overloaded. They are also transmitted from mother to child in the uterus or after birth through breast milk. In some cases, pesticides can cause delayed reactions of the nervous system even after several years of initial exposure. Most individuals have accumulated a certain level of pesticide in the body as a result of the many years of consuming products containing these chemicals. Because of this, many health problems can occur, such as headaches, weakened immune systems, and even birth defects of newborn babies.

Often, organic foods are much fresher and taste better. Because they do not contain preservatives, organic food can not be kept very much. This is why they are often produced on smaller farms, close to where they are going to be sold.

Organic farming is also more beneficial to the environment. Its practices reduce groundwater, water and air pollution, soil erosion, increase fertility, and use less energy. In addition, organic farming is healthier for birds and small animals as chemicals contained in pesticides make it difficult to reproduce and even kill them. Also, avoiding the use of pesticides for agricultural crops is beneficial, including for farmers who deal with them.

Meat, dairy products and organic eggs come from animals that are fed with organic feed. These animals will be kept close to their natural environment (freedom of movement, access to pasture, etc). Also, animals and birds will not be given antibiotics, hormones or other medications in the absence of the disease (but they can be vaccinated against diseases).

Fruits and vegetables grown using conventional methods contain the lowest levels of pesticides. Most of these have hay or thick bark, being naturally better protected against harmful substances. Also, their production methods do not require the use of too much pesticide.

Organic product labels

The GMO specification on the product label means that they do not contain genetically modified organisms. The most important thing to remember is that it does not necessarily mean organic. If there is an organic USDA specification on the label, it indicates that the organic food is certified.

100% organic

The food is completely ecological or made with organic ingredients.

Organic

Foods that contain at least 95% organic ingredients.

Contains organic ingredients

Foods containing at least 70% organic ingredients (usually the organic ingredients contained in the product).

Natural

Minced, and the meat does not contain dyes or artificial flavors, preservatives or other non-natural ingredients.
