Is organic food better for my health?

In Australia, both organic and conventionally grown foods can provide all the nutrients we need when included in a healthy balanced diet.

Whether you choose organic foods or conventionally grown foods is your personal choice.

People choose organic foods for a number of reasons, including environmental benefits, to support local producers, to reduced the use of chemicals, and as a taste preference. However, when we compare organic to conventional produce, there is no difference in terms of the nutrients or nutrition they provide.
