There are also limitations of the organic products in terms of storage and handling. the case of animal products which are produced “organic” according to their producers are monitored by independent bodies.

    Processed food are known as organic, when it’s produced products uses 95% of organic ingredients. Organic products has it’s limitations in terms of storage/handling and monitored by independent bodies. It is very expensive to buy any organic food in the market, therefore not everyone can afford it. Organic food have more natural nutritional values. This nutrients are very important for human growth and maturity. Also organic food has links of chain, starting from it’s raw natural ingredients to it’s processed products. That is why there is no fear of the use of injected or induced pesticides/fertilizers on the reaction of the human body. It is very rear to see/hear that, organic food already in the hands of the consumer is toxic to human consumption/health.
