Organic Food - 2

Organic foods are costly

      This is what every one thinks. But the truth is different.  Look at our observation from kitchen. We observed that when we make spice-mix powder, we have to use a pound of coriander seed powder grown with pesticides and chemical fertilizers. To get the same spice level (taste and quality), we have to use only one fourth  the amount of coriander seed powder grown organically. If you compare the cost, organic coriander seed powder cost three times than the non-organic one, but the net usage is less and so in fact we save dollars  by using organic spices. If the aromatic and flavoring nutrients levels in spices are obviously higher  in organic coriander seeds, then  think about other medicinal and nutrient levels that are high in organic foods?. There are several research studies that support our  observation that organically grown foods have higher nutrient content.

       You might be buying apples, tomatoes, rice, nuts by half or three times the price of organic foods, but in reality you are spending more money for less nutrients. So health wise and economically organic foods are in-comparably superior to non-organic ones. We also observe that 99% of the organic mung beans sprouted, while less than 60% of the mung beans purchased from Indian stores only sprouted. This also shows that the viability of the foods, which might be due to the treatment the seeds receive when they are imported to USA to prevent bugs. Several chemical and (radiation?) treatments are given to imported foods in the name of maintaining quality.

More holistic awareness

     The next reason is the holistic awareness in organic food production. Instead of treating foods just as machines that produce foods, organic producers have awareness about nature and consider food crops, the soil organisms, farm animals as and humans as part of nature. This holistic view makes organic food production holistic and healthy and everlasting.
