|You walk through the supermarket ailes comparing prices of the strawberries in the fruit section. One punnet is $3.99 and another punnet which is certified organic is $6.99. Almost doubled in price. Depending where in Australia you purchase organic produce you can expect to pay around 20 – 100% premium.
So is the higher price for organic food justified?
Organic food has taken some beating from the public due to the expensive price tag that comes with it. Now we can go into a debate about the claims of scientific evidence showing organic produce containing more nutrition. Or counter reports showing organic produce having no nutritional advantage over conventional foods.
The fact is, the higher price for organics has nothing to do with the nutritional value of the product.
What we do know for sure is that organic produce contains no herbicides, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, insecticides, growth hormones, GMOs, antibiotics, artificial additives, flavourings, colourings and chemical preservatives etc……. So you are putting less toxins into your body when consuming organic foods.
So does the health aspect for organic foods alone justify for the almost doubling in price tag? Off course not! Here are 10 more reasons why organic food cost more?
