What are Different Between Organic and Natural Foods? – Part 1

Organic foods (credit to Grist)

We sometimes confused with the words of “Natural foods” and “Organic Foods.” Generally speaking, natural foods are foods without processing and no additives.

Some says that natural foods have minimally processed and not contain specific additives, including sweeteners, food colors, flavorings and antibiotics.

The foods that are grown and processed based on standard certified by USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) is called “Organic Foods.”

Practically, organic foods were produced by using limited or avoiding the use of man-made fertilizers and pesticides.

In addition, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is not include in organic foods farming system.

Briefly, the different between organic and natural foods could distinguish in terms of:
- food labels
- production
- food demand and availability
- certification agencies.


Natural foods (credit Food Security and Food Justice)

In term of food labels, organic label refers to legal implication, while labels for natural foods could be used or printed by any food producers.

For food production that organic foods mean the foods are produced by organic manners, whereas, Natural foods are using minimum synthesized.

Demand for organic foods seem higher than natural foods. Both foods are available in many groceries across America.

United States Department of Agricultural (USDA) provided certificates for organic foods, while natural foods are certified by The International Association of Natural Product Producers (IANPP).

Moreover, we might hear many people said the phrase of "Go Organic," it is because they believe organic food have advantages than other foods produced or proceed by other methods (in this case is natural foods).

Is it True? Do you believe it?

  13. Good information, distinguish some foods from others: natural, organic and processed.
    Among the natural and organic should be included on average: the healthy ones, which have had less processing than usual, these are the ones that I usually consume.
    Have a happy weekend!

  15. Such an informative post! I choose organic for certain foods, but am less fussed about others. I try to buy organic meat and dairy and some fruit and vegetables but am less bothered about other vegetables such as onions and mushrooms.

  44. Il prodotto biologico costa più di quello coltivato con i metodi tradizionali e qualche volta si è scoperto che i prodotti biologici non rispettavano tutte le regole imposte dalla legge. Ci vogliono più controlli.

  52. This is a very important debate nowadays. Honestly I don't pay all that attention to this diffrence, here in Italy we have lots of small producers that produce foods without chemicals and as long we buy from them, we know we are in good hands.

  69. Organic is important to me. It makes no sense to me to spray food or anything with pesticides and fungicides and then eat them. These chemicals are harming all life on this planet. It is a big important thing to consider. Thanks for sharing it.

  70. That was a great and comprehensive article…all the tips enumerated and explained will be helpful for those who are wise enough to tap from it. Any business nowadays without social media signals and presence may not make it to the outermost, and investment too is part of the key to success in business. Keep up the good work.
