Organic Nutrition

Are organic foods more nutritious?

Possibly. Whether foods are produced organically (without pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers) or conventionally, "they generally contain the same kinds and amounts of vitamins and minerals," says Mary Lee Chin, RD, owner of Nutrition Edge Communications in Denver. However, a recent study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found organic corn and strawberries to have higher levels of phenolic metabolites, or disease-fighting antioxidants. It seems that the fertilizer used to produce conventionally grown foods may be enough to disrupt a plant's metabolite production.
