Organic produce is becoming more popular throughout society, with it now widely available in both supermarkets and via independent suppliers.
Organic food and produce has never been so accessible.
While many people opt for an organic diet for environmental reasons, more and more people are consuming an organic diet to improve their health.
At Wild Juice Co. we made the decision long ago to only use organic produce that is ethically sourced from local suppliers.
But why does that matter?
Here are 5 benefits of using organic-only produce.
1. Fewer pesticides
Now more than ever it’s essential we know what we are putting into our bodies. Diet has a large part to play in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but how many of us realise exactly what goes into growing non-organic produce?
Many non-organic foods are sprayed with pesticides designed to eliminate weeds and insects and as a result, these chemicals enter the food chain and have the potential to be harmful to humans.
However, organic food is grown naturally enabling you to know exactly what it is you are putting into your body and ultimately have a healthier diet according to the British Journal of Nutrition.
2. Better for the environment
As organic food is grown in a more natural way than its non-organic counterpart, it is more environmentally friendly.
Pesticides don’t discriminate between harmful insects and other vital insects such as bees and other pollinators.
Likewise, the lack of chemicals enables the soil to be richer, which is better for both the produce itself and the wildlife that lives within it. The way organic produce is grown and harvested also means that no harmful chemicals are carried into the ocean.
3. Organic produce is GMO-free
To ensure that crops grow in a specific manner, for example, they grow to in a particular shape, height or colour, they are often genetically modified.
This type of genetic modification isn’t the type of modification that usually occurs naturally. Instead, the crop or strain of produce has been synthetically designed to be resistant to pesticides and in some cases, they can even be bred to produce insecticides themselves.
Ensuring you you eat an organic diet will help you avoid GMO foods.
4. More antioxidants
At Wild Juice Co. we try to pack in as much goodness as possible into each bottle of juice that we produce. Many of our ingredients have been specifically chosen for their antioxidant-rich nature.
A study by the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry highlighted that organic fruit and vegetables can often include more antioxidants than non-organic food, meaning we are potentially able to include more of the good stuff in each bottle you drink.
