Product development and food processing has become rapidly advanced over the last few decades. Cook, chill, high-pressure processing, irradiation, and genetic modification are all modern methods that extend the shelf-life and maintain the quality of food. Methods such as genetic modification are providing us with the perfect, identical-shaped tomatoes, along with fruit and vegetables which are now available in every season. Although this seems to meet the needs of the modern consumer, the consequences of eating these products is still not fully known. If you feel as though you are a cautious consumer and are concerned about the treatment the food you are eating has been through, along with the impact it is having on the environment, why not convert to organic foods? One way to do that would be to read Lynda Brown's introduction to organic food, its availability, advantages and the major differences between this and inorganic food. The main aim of organic farming is to work with nature to produce healthy, nutritious food economically and in a manner that is beneficial to the consumer and the planet.
The early chapters discuss the concept briefly explained in the synopsis above. Later sections include a breakdown of the organic food groups: fruit and veg, meat and fish, bread and cereals.
Within each food group it explains the process the food has undergone and the nutritional quality of the end product. This book is well-written and packed with all the information you need to know to make the transition to eating foods grown in a more natural process. --Louise Coyle
From the Back Cover
'The indispensable guide to help people eat better than ever before.'
There has been an explosion in the demand for organic food since the publication of the bestselling The Shopper’s Guide to Organic Food two years ago. Box schemes, farm shops, farmers’ markets, supermarkets, health food shops, mail order, and even on-line retailers offer a bewildering array of options to potential consumers. Such a variety of options means that the time has never been riper for Lynda Brown’s completely revised The New Shopper’s Guide to Organic Food. This is the only major book to explain what organic food to buy – and where to buy it. It tells you all you need to know about organic food, how to tell it’s authentic, and includes comprehensive listings on how, what and where to shop. A complete A-Z of all organic food and drink provides the most user-friendly organic shopping list around.See all Product description
