Eating CLEAN to us is the practice of eating whole, natural, organic, chemical & pesticide free foods that leave your body as pure as it was before you ate the food. Maybe even improving it!
We strive to work with as many suppliers as we can that practice certified organic production methods. If they can’t be certified organic (we know it can be an expensive process), we choose those who believe and practice these ideals as much they can and just plain care about the food they make. We don’t use any ingredient (or an ingredient of an ingredient) that we can’t pronounce and simply provide you the best, most awesomly, naturally, wonderful food we can find… why?
It’s Good for You
A March 2008 review of more than 100 studies in the scientific literature, conducted by “The Organic Center, confirmed the “nutritional superiority of plant-based organic foods.” The review concluded that organic foods were nutritionally superior in 145 matched pairs, or in 61% of the cases, while conventional foods were more nutrient dense in 87 matched pairs, or 37%. There were no differences in 2% of the matched pairs. Further, the organic samples contained higher concentrations of important polyphenols and antioxidants in about three-quarters of the 59 matched pairs representing those four phytonutrients.
It’s Good for the Environment
Genetically engineered herbicide-resistant crops have led to a 122-million pound increase in pesticide use.
Small-scale, organic farming operations have been shown to use 60% less fossil fuel per unit of food than conventional industrial farms.
It’s Good for the Animals
In conventional farming, hormones and non‐therapeutic antibiotics are often used to promote animal growth and productivity. These treatments have been known to result in antibiotic resistant bacteria and other human health concerns.
More than 70% of all US antibiotics are estimated to be fed to hogs, poultry, and beef cattle for such nontherapeutic reasons
The European Union recently phased out all routine use of antibiotics as animal feed additives.
