How to Tell If Packaged Food is Organic

How to Tell If Packaged Food is Organic
Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether a food is organic or not. Fresh produce is easier…it either is, or isn’t organically grown. But packaged foods are trickier. Here’s what you need to know.

1. Look for the USDA certified organic seal. This means at least 95% of the ingredients are organic.
2. If you see a label that says 70% organic, that means that 70% of the ingredients are organic.
3. If the product has less than 70% organic ingredients, it can’t carry an organic label, so you have to read the ingredients on the package. Don’t be fooled by products that you think are organic because their names or packaging look like they are. You have to really read through the ingredients.
