Filed under: Food and NutritionThere are many that think conventional produce like apples, grapes and oranges don't have the nutrients they used to based on the overusage of the land where many crops are grown. After all, can you really expect the same nutrition value in fruits and vegetables these days than from, say, 30 years ago? Has the land been tilled only a few thousands times since then? Probably.
Concerned folks only buy organic produce, which is grown in lands where farmers respect the environment and practice sustainable agriculture practices as a way of life. But, is it really better produce. Yes, according to recent statements from scientists that provide evidence that organic crops contain higher levels of important nutrients when compared to normal crops.
One of the results included an analysis of organic tomatoes, apples and peaches -- all of which revealed greater concentrations of vitamin C, polyphenols, betacarotene and flavonoids.
