Organic Does Not Mean Healthy

Sugars, Carbohydrates, And Fats May Still Be Bad For Your Health

You should differentiate between organic and healthy foods. The label organic on foods means that it was produced without pesticides, fertilizers, solvents, and chemicals.

Organic foods are grown like people used to do it in the past when there were no chemicals. Those were common foods without any additional descriptions like organic.

The main aim of organic food producers is to avoid pesticides, fertilizers, GMO etc. But they do not care very much about the calories. It is a widespread myth that organic products contain fewer fats, calories, and sugar. The same is true about the products labeled fair trade. The results of a recent survey showed that most of the respondents believed that chocolate with such label contained fewer calories.

Today we can see hundreds of thousands of organic products but they all contain sugar, carbohydrates, and fats. It means that organic products can still be harmful to our health. Many recipes call for brown sugar to make a dessert healthy. Brown sugar is probably less harmful than white sugar but we can not classify it as healthy foods, that is for sure.

New surveys show that people really believe that organic chips or cookies are healthier. People are willing to pay more for organic products by 23%.

When you go shopping, let the label organic fool you. Attentively read the information on the package that should include nutritional information and ingredients. Study how many fats, carbohydrates, and protein a product contains. Compare different products and make a conscious choice.

Do not get me wrong. There is nothing bad in organic products and in some cases, it is better to prefer organic foods. For example, choose organic fruits and vegetables that you typically eat with peels. The rule of thumb is to think twice whether organic is beneficial for your health or not. Do not waste your money in vain.
