Is Organic Food Really Organic?

Hi I'm Nick and welcome to One Minute Six Pack. In today’s video, I’m going to mention
a quick tip to keep in mind when buying organic food. This tip is based on question: “Is
organic food really organic?” Well, the truth about organic foods is that the label
“organic” is a really loose term. What this means is that it’s possible for some
food labels to say “organic” despite the fact that some of its components actually
The regulations in this area are tricky, and smart companies have figured out loopholes
to get their products an “organic” label even though it’s not 100% organic. As unfair
and ridiculous as this is, it’s the unfortunate reality we current face. So here’s what
you can do to prevent yourself from being tricked into spending extra money on foods
that are even healthier than non-organic labeled foods. First, focus on getting as many 1 ingredient
foods as possible. For example, if broccoli is labeled “organic”, it’s a pretty
safe bet that you’re getting something 100% organic.
Second, when buying organic food with multiple ingredients, always read the back label that
lists the ingredients. In such a situation, if you see any of the following words, you
know it’s not 100% organic: One, hydrogenated oil; Two, high fructose corn syrup; and Three,
any other ingredient you’re not familiar with. If you can’t recognize it and you
can’t pronounce it, you probably shouldn’t be eating it either. That's all for today's
video. For more organic food facts, click the link above; and to learn more about how
