Chinese “Organic” Contamination: How to Avoid Fake Organic Products
Published: Sunday 24 March 2013

These tips alone will help you weed through most junk quality brands.

Thanks to corporate loopholes and profit-driven manufacturers, it’s harder than ever to really know what you are putting into your body — or perhaps even more importantly the mouths of your children. That said, it is possible to make sure you’re getting what is not just labeled organic and shipped from a contaminated facility in China, but actually high quality.

The fact of the matter is that the decision to switch to organic food is one that signifies a serious change in lifestyle across the board, leading to a wealth of information and serious optimizations for your health. It’s a decision that should not be hindered by slick marketing techniques and labeling loopholes that are unfortunately taken advantage of by many fake ‘health’ companies. Subsidiary corporations that are actually owned by major parent companies like Coca-Cola that really don’t care about the quality or health effects of their products.

  • The problem with the organic industry isn’t that major parent companies like Coca-Cola are taking over. The problem is there’s no testing to ensure organic food is genuine. Companies like Coca-Cola are just following the rules, such as they are, which basically require record-keeping and the payment of hefty certification fees in order to get a product certified as organic.

    Anyone who really cares about the quality and health effects of certified-organic products should encourage the USDA to start testing all crops and livestock before they’re sent to market, especially if those crops and livestock are located overseas in countries like China. Testing is the only way to keep things on the up-and-up!

  • Processed food is not a very healthy option as many harmful preservatives are used to enhance the expiry date of the product. Many sellers sell their food products under natural label when their products are not natural and use multiple synthetic ingredients. Buyers should make sure before buying what they are buying.
