In my Cooking Light Magazine I read an interesting article talking about the ‘organic halo’.

Organic halo describes that feeling when you buy something with the label organic, and the fact that it makes you feel like you are eating something ‘healthy’, so you can eat more of it!  It shows that even though specific dietary info is given on the nutrition label, the label tag-lines on the front give the consumer a false-sense of well being.  Well being about proper portions, salt and sugar content, and other ingredients.

You have to use your knowledge of basic principles of good nutrition when deciding how much to eat of anything, whether it says organic or not!

To read the definition of organic, click on this link from the system checker from the front of the web-sight, for this and other articles:
