The meaning of the word organic in the dictionary is: developing naturally – occurring or developing gradually and naturally, without being forced or contrived.
No organic food is a Genetically Modified Organism. There has also been some debate whether organic produce or foods have more nutrition than non-organic.
The debate has ended, stating that the vitamin content is the same in traditional grown foods verses organically grown, but the difference is found in the antioxidants.
Organic produce has 30% higher antioxidants than non-organic produce.
What are antioxidants? They are a substance found in produce that help inhibit oxidation, or counteract the deterioration of stored food products.
Antioxidants once consumed, help to remove potentially damaging oxidizing agents from the body.
Here at Splendid Recipes and More, we use organic ingredients, though not 100%, but recipe will state if that is the case.
All of our organic ingredients are purchased at the Whole Foods Market (starting in 2015 all foods sold at WFM in the frozen, boxed or canned will only have organic products in them).
Here is a list of recipes, and the list will grow, so check back often, when you would like a recipe with organic ingredients used.
