Why Organic Products?
This is a question I often hear, almost immediately, when I talk about B by Nadia Boule. And to be honest, it is also a question I made myself at first.
While reading and researching, I discovered a number of reasons beyond the most obvious one: that organic products look more 'natural' than 'conventional' foods.
Organic foods are grown and processed without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides, antibiotics or hormones.
To fortify the soil, organic farms use natural manure or foods produced on the farm, rather than chemical substances, preventing harmful substances from being passed on to people through the food chain.
Organic cropping also uses crop rotation. That is, farmers alternate crops in the same field in order to enrich the land with ingredients that other plants absorb and others attach to the soil.
In the case of honey, organic beekeepers place their hives on mountains and in forested areas where there is no human intervention, so that their bees have access to virgin nectar for a radius of at least three kilometers.
As you can see, this can have only a positive effect on the final product that reaches us, the consumer, while also contributing to environmental equilibrium.
And how do I know what I'm getting is actually organic?
And the second most frequently asked question.
Nonetheless, in terms of organic food legislation, there are, fortunately, very strict rules.
In principle, only farmers who produce food according to organic regulations and are certified by an independent body can characterize their products as "Certified organic"To do so, they pass lab tests to identify any chemicals, pesticides, or anything else that could distort the final product." Also, storage and processing takes place in special areas where conventional products are forbidden and the handling them through invoices and numbering of packages.
B by Nadia Boule is inspected and certified by QCert . And finally, some friendly advice for all of us who want to be certain that the product we have in our hands is in fact organic: Beyond anything the label might say, always search the packaging to find the name of the certifying organization.
