Ottawa Cleaning Services You Can Trust
Anyone that’s been to their local grocery store in the past few months knows there has been a growing trend of organic food becoming more available and taking up more and more shelf space. The cost is definitely more, so the common question Ottawa residents have is whether or not the extra price is worth the nutritional value or is it just a marketing scheme? We’ve amassed some resources that can give you a more educated view on the issue overall, and hopefully make your grocery delivery in Ottawa more efficient.
When it comes to certain foods, organic foods, meaning those grown or cooked without genetically modified organisms, or any dangerous pesticides, some are worth it and others suffer from a bit of hype. For example, organic cookies might sound good but they still contain sugar, wheat and gluten, all which are not ideal for regular consumption. On the other hand, it is well known that organic spinach and leafy greens contain much more trace minerals than those that have been exposed to inorganic, dangerous fertilizers and chemicals. Over a lifetime, and especially for young children, eating organic vegetables can make a difference on the quality and quantity of essential minerals and vitamins they require.
Berries and any fruit or vegetable that is more porous than other foods should especially be consumed in their organic form. Strawberries and blackberries absorb tons of environmental pollutants so you end up getting quite a few toxic trace minerals in your bloodstream. Unfortunately, there have been very few studies done on the long term effects of these inorganic pesticides and chemicals so it can be hard to backup these claims with anything but the above. With that said, there are big benefits to higher levels of basic vitamins and minerals. So the next time you have your groceries delivered in Ottawa, consider going organic.
In terms of price, which is the most popular objection to shopping organically, we are already seeing prices drop as demand rises and people realize the long term health benefits of a pesticide and GMO free diet. For certain fruit like banana’s or apples, depending on the season the price difference may be as little as ten cents, and that is forecast to keep falling as demand rises from consumers in the grocery industry.
