Does Organic Food Taste Better?
All-natural, organic and whole foods do taste better! Is there any scientific basis for this assertion? Yes!
It is common sense that well-balanced soils grow strong, healthy plants that taste great, and that animals fed the food they were born to eat and allowed to roam around grow healthier and more flavorful. Unlike produce grown under the commercial pressure to maximize crop harvests at the expense of quality, and livestock whose development has been artificially accelerated to get it to the grocery stores in mass quantities faster, organic fruits and vegetables are generally cultivated longer in their nutrient-rich soils and organically raised animals are allowed to mature at a natural pace. As a result, the natural flavors derived from organic fruits, vegetables, eggs, meat and poultry stand out in comparison to their conventional counterparts.
Also adding to the better taste, organic fruits and vegetables are higher in flavonoids than conventionally growth produce. Flavonoids are natural chemicals produced by plants as a defense mechanism against pests and disease. They have various beneficial biochemical and antioxidant effects for our bodies, but it turns out that plants rich in flavonoids are also highly tasty. This phenomenon is a chemical side-benefit associated with the fact that flavonoids tend to bind sugars in the plant. Because organic fruits and vegetables are not exposed to chemical pesticides, organically grown plants produce more flavonoids and therefor taste more flavorful.
