Speaker: How do I know if a food is organic?
Jeannette Bessinger: The U.S. Department of Agriculture has actually developed a seal that is put on to packages foods that have been certified organic. One version of the seal is a 100% organic. And if that food has been deemed 100% organic the seal will say so. When a food contains at least 95% organic it can still display the USDA seal. When at least 70% of products ingredients are organic that it might say on the package made with organic.
Products with less than a 70% organic content may list those ingredients as organic on the side of the package, but not on the front.
