Organic Agincourt!

Posted in Comment,Foodservice Footprint news,International by foodservicefootprint on September 26, 2009


A French study has concluded that there are nutritional benefits to organic produce after all, yet The Food Standards Agency claims the study is too limited.

The review published by the French food agency AFSSA contradicts the findings of the Food Standard Agency’s report that caused so much controvercy because of its conclusion that there were no significant nutritional differences between organic and conventional food.

The French report concludes that organic plants produce more dry matter, minerals and anti oxidants. It found that between 94 percent and 100 percent of organic food did not contain any pesticide residues and that organic vegetable contain 50 percent fewer nitrate compounds.

Anglo French relations as usual!
