WHAT IS organic food?
Organic food refers to food produced by organizations that meet organic farm standards. There are different standards for organic farms around the world, but in general, organic farms are committed to recycling resources, pursuing ecological balance, and protecting biodiversity. In the process of organic food production, pesticides are not always banned, but certain pesticides and fertilizers may be banned, such as pesticides containing arsenic and papaverine.
In Taiwan, the United States, Japan, and the European Union, “organic” is a label that needs to be certified by a specific organization. It is illegal to claim that it is organically sold without certification. However, there is no international standard for organic food certification. As a result, the current certification body organizations still do not have a set of traceability standards to follow; therefore, the drawbacks of incorrect certification by food agencies often occur; “non-toxic residue products” are also often broad Recognized as “organic food”.
