Dandelion Leaf Organic
Is a bitter but nutritious herb prepared from the roots and leaves of the well-known, yellow flowered weed. Traditionally, the young leaves have been eaten as salad green and have been used in herbal medicine for diuretic action. The roots are used to help stimulate appetite and digest rich, fatty foods. Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified,
