Q & A: Questions & Answers

  1. Are all natural products organic?

    In short the answer is no. Natural foods are assumed to be minimally processed, without additives and preservatives, no hormones or antibiotics.
    In Canada, organic is regulated by the government and must follow national standards, while “natural” is a marketing term used by companies based on their own definition of what “natural” is. That means anyone can use the word “natural” on their products, and consumers have to trust them. “Organic” on the other hand, is the gold standard for “eco-labels”—inspected and overseen by the government. Make sure you Think Before You Eat and look for the “Canada Organic” logo!
