Organic means grown or raised without the use of pesticides or chemicals. The food is grown naturally without any enhancers. There are no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. There are no chemical fertilizers used in the growing of organic food. There are some foods that are classed as organic, and some foods that are classed as 100% organic.

Organic food is food that is grown without using any pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, or antibiotics. Processed food must not have any chemical addiditives in it. In the United States, strict guidelines must be followed in order for a food to be labeled by the USDA as "organic" food.

Organic food is food that is grown naturally, without using any man-made chemicals or other ingredients. For example, pesticides and chemical fertilizers are often used in growing vegetables. Organic vegetables are grown without these elements. Organic meats come from animals that have not been given any man-made supplements.

Organic food is food that has been grown using as few chemicals and pesticides as possible. Ideally it has also been grown in the same area that it's being sold in. It is still important to clean off organic food before consuming it, as there are still germs on it.
