What is Organic food ?

These days we see lot of food items in the supermarket which have a sticker on them saying organic food. Organic food refers to the farming practice and the way the food is produced. The organic farming severely restricts the use of artificial chemicals and pesticides. Organic fruits and vegetables contain 40% more anti oxidants then other conventionally grown fruits and vegetables. Organic foods are more expensive then others because they are grown on small scale.
