How legitimate is the organic label?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are some rules associated with the labeling of organic foods.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has formulated these rules and the are as follows:

    1. Food that is 100 percent organic may carry the new “USDA organic” label and say “100% organic.”
    2. Food that is at least 95 percent organic may carry the new seal.
    3. Food that is at least 70 percent organic will list the organic ingredients on the front of the package.
    4. If a product is less than 70 percent organic, the organic ingredients may be listed on the side of the package but cannot say “organic” on the front.

    Hope this helps!
