When it comes to distinguishing organic products from non-organic products or foods, it is essential that we look at a series of certain elements. We explain the most important ones.
Ecological products are known as those foods that, specifically, come from both organic agriculture and livestock, which are obtained respecting the welfare of animals and the environment in which they are produced, and no chemical products are used in its production or obtaining.
These are the main advantages that organic food gives us, unlike other food products that, although just as healthy or natural, have advantages such as their flavor (more intense and natural), or that tend to be more respectful with the environment.
Among the different organic foods that we can currently find in the market, they can be: fruits, vegetables, meats, bread and even healthy alcoholic beverages such as wine (as long as their consumption is moderate).
Although organic production has been regulated in our country since 1989, and each organic product must have a specific labeling, sometimes distinguishing an organic food from a non-organic one may not be as simple as one might actually think.
How to distinguish organic products?
Organic products or foods must above all be easily distinguished by their labeling, having to comply with the standards established in Regulation (EEC) No. 2092/91, regulated in the European Union in 1991.
Of course, it is necessary to take into account that in our country each autonomous community presents its own distinctive logo. Although currently all these products have the mention of “organic” production, the initials ES (from Spain) and the initials of the autonomous community from which the product in question comes.
With this label, consumers will be able to identify whether or not a certain product or food comes from organic farming or livestock, with its obvious benefits and added advantages.
