What does “organic” mean?

[one_half]
In order for a product to be labeled “organic,” it must meet strict USDA (The United States Department of Agriculture) for how it was raised or farmed.

Organic produce is grown without pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides or fungicides. A conventional farm that want to become organic must wait for 3 years after using any of these prohibited materials in order to qualify for organic certification.

Organic livestock only eats organic feed, isn’t given antibiotics or growth hormones and must have access to outdoor areas, fresh air and clean drinking water.

In order for a processed food (like cereal or soup) to be labeled organic, at least 95% of its ingredients must be certified organic.
