Organic Food Labeling: How To Tell If Packaged Food Is Organic

Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish organic food by its packaging. Fresh produce is easier…it either is or isn’t organically grown. But packaged foods are trickier. Here’s what you need to know about organic food labels:

* Look for the USDA certified organic seal. This means at least 95% of the ingredients are organic.

* If you see a label that says 70% organic, that means that 70% of the ingredients are organic.

* If the product has less than 70% organic ingredients, it can’t feature an organic label, so you have to read the ingredients on the package. Don’t be fooled by products that you think are organic because their names or packaging look like they are.
