One of the questions that I have been getting a lot lately is: how do we know if the food we are eating or buying is organic?

The answer is pretty simple. The USDA has a list of approved profit and not-for-profit certifiers that inspect farms and manufacturing facilities. When these certifiers declare that a product is truly organic, based on existing rules and regulations, the food manufacturer may then use the USDA certified organic seal.

While this is no fool-proof system, it is the best we have. Organizations such as the Organic Consumers Association are constantly on the lookout for companies that are trying to circumvent the rules. So, if maintaining the integrity of organic is important to you, please support them.

In this video, I also discuss what you want to look out for when buying organic fruits and vegetables in a store.
