10 Surprising Things You Didn’t Know About Organic Foods

#7. It’s organic, sure… but not 100% organic

The USDA requires a food item to only be 95% organic in order to use the label. Some products might be 100% organic, but only those that specifically state that they are. Also, many products are exempt from the definition of organic. Why? Because it’s too hard to source them organically, such as fish oil, sausage castings, celery powder, etc.

If you want 100% organic food, you’ll have to look for the specific label that says so. Otherwise, you are probably getting a mix.
