Organic Food refers to the foods that are grown, manufactured and handled by the organic methods as regulated by agencies, such as the USDA under the Organic Food Products Act. To label a food organic, a manufacture must follow specific rules and regulations of the USDA or other country’s governing agencies.
The primary difference between Organic and non organic foods is organics are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, genetic engineering, pesticides, herbicides or chemical agents to control/kill insects, weeds, and fungal infestations.
Natural Foods are usually minimally processed or small crop farmers try to incorporate organic methods, but cannot afford to have their crops certified organic. At this time, there are no stringent standards.
