Organic Vs. Natural Vs. Conventional Often it is confusing to know the difference between Organic vs. Natural vs. Conventional. Here is a table that explains it all in one shot:
Organic Certified products must abide to organic policies set by the organic bodies. this means no chemicals and pesticides and many other regulations on produce growing and additionally on the processing of the products (i.e. addition of additives, fillers, or cleaning of machinery with certain cleaning agents, ...).
It is important to realize that certain high fructose content fruits such as dates will carry any pesticides or chemicals sprayed on them into your food. this is because of the fructose level date products can not be washed as it will wash away the sugar (dissolving the fruit) & also cause mold afterwards if not completely dried, so going all organic (free of chemicals and pesticides) is very important.
This is also important when you are consuming high water content fruits and vegetables as chemicals and pesticides travel to these produce via the water and they will have more harmful chemicals that you will ingest with these type of produce (i.e. celery, watermelon, ...).
When researching and looking for date supplies we were offered a great deal on date products from overseas advertising them as natural (wild grown). Have in Mind natural does not mean it is not treated with pesticides and harsh chemicals which are more common in some countries. It also does not mean that they need to abide by the policies that organic products abide by, which means they can always alter their process and use of chemicals based on season and pests.
