    Default We Can No Longer Rely on Organic Standard

    ANH-USA
    FEBRUARY 28, 2019

    Consumers looking for clean, healthy food have for years turned to foods with the USDA’s organic seal. This seal is understood to mean that the food has been grown in accordance with organic principles—most importantly, that the farming practices promote healthy soil, which in turn produces healthy food. Unfortunately, corporate influence has infected the USDA’s organic program to such an extent that it can be difficult to trust the organic seal. Until the USDA cleans up its act, consumers may need to start looking to alternatives, such as
    the Real Organic Project.

    Done. Fortunately, we don't have to depend only on the USDA organic seal. I also look for the AGA seal (American Grassfed Association) seal. The grassfed seal doesn't only pertain to the finished product, but certifies the organic treatment of the animal over the entire life cycle--from weaning to harvest. The AGA seal is green with white blades of grass on it.

    Thanks for introducing us to the AGA seal of approval. I didn't know it existed! I have signed up for their newsletter.
