Review of organic products available in the GCC

What will I find in this article?

This article will provide you with basic information about the significance of organic food. After you have read this, you will know your perspective over organic production.

Origins

The beautiful term “organic farming” first was used in 1940s, described as an agricultural method alternative to “chemical farming” which is now called “intensive farming.” The basic requirement for organic farming is limiting the use of synthetic material in order to enhance the speed or cost of food production. “In general, organic standard are designed to allow the use of naturally occurring substances while prohibiting or strictly limiting synthetic substances,” Wikipedia says.

How does it work?

Some organic foods may have more “organic” in them, than others, but the difference is usually very modest and insignificant. According to the European Union (EU) law on organic production: “Foods may be labeled “organic” if at least 95% of their agricultural ingredients meet the necessary standards.”

Why choose organic?

Some people do not consider the importance of organic foods and that works to them just fine. A non-organic product, classified as food is still food, the difference lies in the percentage of nutritional content. A chocolate bar is not a bar of plastic or poison and potato chips, if it has “potato” in its name, it is usually made from potato. On the other hand, there are types of additives and preservatives in some foods, which are harmful and our bodies metabolize these in a different way than nutrients. A healthy system can recognize these and deal with them effectively. However, if a body that has some issues like inadequate blood pressure, excess weight or other problems, it indicates a necessity to change diet. The alternative usually is organic food, and most of the time it is very much effective.

How do I recognize organic foods in supermarkets?

It depends on your local country laws and regulations on marking organic food. For example: foods produced and supplied to market according to the laws of the EU have a marking of a green rectangle in which white stars are placed in order to form a leaf. That means that the product is no less than 95 per cent natural and organic. So next time you go to a supermarket, have a look – you might find your favorite products in the realm of organic and super-healthy.
