Why It's Worth It:
Choosing organic breads and grains is a great way to reduce your exposure to toxic and synthetic pesticides, petroleum-based fertilizers, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives and GMOs.
What to look for:
- Look for the USDA seal. This indicates that the product is made of at least 95% organic ingredients.
- Look for the phrase "Made with Organic Ingredients." This indicates that the product contains at least 70 percent organic ingredients.
- Look for information on the certifier (i.e.: the certifier's name or logo).
- Look on the ingredients panel to confirm that organic ingredients were used to make the product.
Bread and Beyond:
Offering everything from kamut to corn, organic has something for everyone when it comes to bread and grains.
