What does ‘organic’ really mean?
You’ve probably heard it – a lot of people are fussing about going “organic.” Consumers are now making a big shift to organic when it comes to fresh produce, food, and even non-food items.
But, what is really the fuss about organic? What makes it a total cut above the conventional and non-organic products?
Organic is simply not having anything artificial, synthetic, chemical-filled, and genetically modified in its content. For fruits and vegetables, organic produce qualifies as those that are environmentally produced without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides, and ionizing radiation. While for animal produce, these are meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products whose source are free of antibiotics, artificial growth hormones, and GMO (genetically modified organisms).
The demand and choice for organic products is founded on some studies indicating the harmful long-term effect of the artificial and chemical contents in food production, for the consumers and the environment. Other studies also highlight the higher nutritional value of organically produced food.
Non Organic Turmeric
In today’s market with a lot of products claiming to be organically produced, identifying genuine organic turmeric is very important, especially if consuming it for health reasons. This is crucial because we do not want to end up ingesting a chemically filled and modified version of turmeric, no ways!
Unless you see and buy turmeric that’s freshly harvested before your eyes, consumers must be wary of the product labels and certifications claiming to be organic. Each country has their own official organic certification stamps that we need to be on the look for when buying. These stamps will vouch for its truthfulness in its content,nutritional value and the way it was farmed.
Benefits of Organic Turmeric
Organically produced turmeric is more labour intensive. Thus, organic products are usually more expensive than non-organic products – but worth the extra cost for those who value health. If you want the full benefit of turmeric’s health properties, then the only option is organic turmeric.
Curcumin, one of turmeric’s most active components, has an impressive and abundant list of health benefits. Curcumin is an effective anti-oxidant that is a great help in fighting off free radicals that damage our healthy cells and weakens our bodies, making it susceptible to countless health problems.
Certified Organic turmeric, which legally cannot be tampered with, will never have had curcumin removed from it, and will always have the full amount of curcumin intact, which on average is between 3 – 5 %.
Some of turmeric’s known healing powers are – mood balancer/enhancer, wound healer, eases joint pains and stiffness, cholesterol regulator, clears skin acne, immune booster, controls diabetes, improves digestion, prevents cancer and the list just goes on!
