Is it REALLY Organic?

Just saw this interesting article from Dr. Mercola.  If you try to buy "organic" there are 3 guidelines you should know about.  Just because the label says "Organic" doesn't mean it's all "Organic".  Here are the rules...

  • Products labeled "100 % Organic" must contain only organically produced ingredients
  • Products labeled "Certified Organic" must contain at least 95 percent organic ingredients
  • The label "Made with Organic Ingredients" can contain anywhere between 70 to 95 percent organic ingredients
In order to ensure you're actually getting your money's worth, you need to make sure the food you buy bears the "100% USDA Organic" label.

My advice is...don't stress about it, do the best you can!
