What is the organization that designates food as organic or not?

    Organic certification comes from the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture). The requirements for a food to be certified organic are strict, and thus many foods can be considered “all-natural” without having that certified organic label.

    If products want to use the USDA seal to signify that they are organic, they have to comply with the USDA standards. Products with at least 95% organic ingredients that don’t use certain processing methods (like using radiation on increase shelf-life) can claim the “Organic” label. There are other labels producers use that are not USDA approved, which likely means these products don’t meet USDA standards for organic produce, but they may be partly organic or sustainably produced.

    The USDA has a strict organic program for certification. For more information, you can also look at the GreenAnswers questions and blogs about this subject listed below:
