Mushrooms Organic
Mushrooms have been eaten in Europe, Russia, China and Japan for thousands of years. Through their history they have been thought to have had certain magical powers or have been used as medicines. There are over 250 edible mushrooms throughout the world. Although only a few are commercially available here the variety is increasing. Mushrooms will supply you iron, fiber and some B group vitamins. 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,
