USDA Certified Organic Dog Food

Unquestionably, USDA certified organic pet foods are healthier than pet foods made from conventionally produced ingredients. Unlike cheaper conventional pet foods, USDA certified organic pet foods contain no residues from pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, or chemicals accumulated during manufacturing that may include a number of the toxic chemicals that are associated with conventional pet food processing.

Organic pet foods contain more nutrients – such as vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals – than non-organic pet food. This is especially important, considering the depletion of nutrients that comes with heavy processing and the consequent need to supplement pet foods with mostly synthetic, low-grade nutrients in order to provide some level of nutrition to dogs, cats, or other pets. So, USDA certified organic pet foods are a great way to provide your animal friend with safe, nutrient-rich food staples. But beware: currently in the USA, only organic certification is regulated by law and any claim of organic status other than that of '(USDA) certified organic' is not substantiated by an unbiased third party.

Organic dog foods are great if done right. The best organic dog food is, of course, prepared fresh at home. However, this may be challenging, given the time constraints of the modern world. Although USDA certified organic dog foods are a great choice, there are large differences in quality among the many available choices. Most of these differences stem from the quality of the ingredients used. Although no low-grade ingredients, such as byproducts or other indefinable ingredients, can be included in USDA certified organic dog foods, a number of important nutritional distinctions arise from manufacturers' choices of ingredients. Some of these distinctions are highlighted below.

Organic dog food should not contain grains or flours as first, or primary, ingredients. Dogs did not evolve to eat grains, whether raw or cooked. Although cooking will render grains digestible by the dog's gastrointestinal tract, cooking also destroys many constituent nutrients; often, the only thing left are empty calories with little or no substantial nutritional value.

The first ingredient in organic dog food should always be a clearly defined source of animal protein. Do not choose dog foods that contain ingredients listed as 'chicken meals' or 'animal protein,' as these can not be reliably traced to their origin. Absent any known origin, it's easy for manufacturers to use low quality sources of animal protein. Moreover – and tragicly, as recent history has taught us – if any contamination or tainting of unsourcable ingredients occurs, it becomes difficult to mount a quick and effective pet food recall to save animal lives if one can not trace the ingredient in question to its source. In the case of USDA certified organic dog foods, one need not worry because the USDA organic standards prohibit the use of obscure and unsourceable low quality ingredients.

Any choice of organic dog food should contain some fruits and / or vegetables. However, plant matter should never make up more than 50% of the total contents of a given dog food product. The percentage of plant matter in a given dog food should be more in the range of 30-40% of the content by weight. And it goes without saying that these ingredients should be organic as well, both to avoid contamination with toxins and increase the nutritional value and health benefits of any given USDA certified organic dog food.

The great thing about feeding your animal with whole food-based USDA certified organic products is that you should not have to worry about routinely adding whole foods with isolated nutrients because organic foods are generally much more nutrient-less than conventional – or non- organic – pet foods. In the case of a truly organic diet, you can supplement with nutrients simply on the basis of your own animal's particular individual needs, and only when necessary. Such occasional supplement makes it possible for you to choose high-quality supplements for your dog instead of the typically low-grade vitamin-and-mineral mixes added by conventional pet food manufacturers to enable them legally to call their foods' balanced 'or' complete . '

Although choosing USDA certified organic pet foods over conventional varieties is just a first step towards better health and well being for your animal, it's a very important first step. So, be good to your animal; take that first step today!

Organic Baby

Along with the baby comes a whole new category of things he / she will "need" -not only the obvious items like nappies, furniture and food, but also all the unforeseen 'essential' extras. This consumerism coupled with our busy, time-constrained lives means it is not always easy to take the green approach to babies. However it does not need to be this way as in truth a baby has very minimal needs.

The key is firstly not to be hauled into an unnecessary buying frenzy by all the new 'must-have' baby products out there. There are some baby essentials that can not be skimped on such as car seats and mattresses but just about anything else can be begged, borrowed, recycled, bought second-hand or even made at home.

Secondly, by understanding the environmental impact of the baby products on offer you can make an informed decision on what you want to buy. There may be some areas where your lifestyle and commitments will simply not allow you to 'go green' eg washable nappies just are not for you, but this can be balanced with the many other areas where environmental benefits can be made eg chemical free organic baby clothes, locally sourced organic food and other items.

Thirdly, understand the importance of organisms. The organic market has grown beyond belief, none more so than in products and produce aimed at babies and children. Research has found that infants and children are much more susceptible to the absorption of chemicals found in the pesticides used in non-organic foods and non-organic clothing and toiletries. There is a growing concern that these chemicals are related to growing rates of cancer in the western world. More and more products now have an organic or 'sustainable planet' alternative. The trick is knowing where to find them or how to make them yourself.

Fourthly, there are many theories on how children develop and learn but it is clear that babies and children learn the most through imitation and in the early years it will be you they are imitating more than anyone else. What better way to teach them about the environment and how we need to protect and nurture it (in the same way we protect and nurture our children) then by watching you carrying out the compost, recycling, planting seeds, bike riding, making things etc . It could be argued that educating our children to ensure the sustainability of their planet is just as important as teaching then to read.

Finally remember above all to enjoy your baby! Yes, all of these things are important but so is the special bond between you and your child and particularly the stress-free quality time you spend with them. You could search high and low for seasonal organic sweet potatoes to puree, knit hand-made organic cotton booties and wash all your nappies and clothes by hand, when you could have spent the time singing songs, playing in the park, cloud spotting and star -gazing, all of which cost nothing, have no effect on the environment and are more likely to bring a smile to both your faces.

This Eco-Baby site will look at the following approaches to providing your green baby with everything they need while still looking out for the environment.

* Baby Essentials, what do you (or rather they) really need and how should I get this stuff?

* Eco-Babies Nappies, all the options made easy.

* Organic baby food, buy it or make it.

* Organic baby clothes & organic toiletries, what's available and where from.

* Get Crafty, arts and crafts for you and your baby,

* Having fun with our children while saving the planet.

* Green Nursery, all the problems and solutions

The History of Today's Organic Farming

Since the beginning of time the growing of all foods that humans consumed was considered to be organic. Plant residues, animal wastes and elements of nature were used to increase the health of the soil to provide nutrients for healthy plants to grow and produce fruits and vegetables. Insects and pests were controlled by natural means. Animals fed on the healthy plants resulting in an organic meat supply.

In the 1920's things began to change in the farming industry. Farmers wanted to increase food production so they are to use fertilizers to increase the nutrients in the soil. This allowed them to produce more fruits and vegetables per unit of land.

With the sunset of the Second World War farming techniques changed dramatically. During the war nerve gas was developed as a weapon and research on the chemicals used for it was found to be effective in killing insects. This led to the development of a new series of insecticides, the first being DDT containing chlorinated hydrocarbons. The fertilizers and chemicals used in farming led to the industrialization of agriculture and organic farming methods rapidly to began to disappear.

At the same time that industrialized agriculture was developing, the modern movement to organic farming was beginning. It started in Europe in the 1920s when several consumers and farmers started looking for an alternative to the foods created by industrialization of agriculture. By the 1940s the organic movement had picked up speed in Britain.

Science writer Rachel Carson published a book titled "Silent Spring" in 1992. In the book she criticizes the thoughtless use of chemical pesticides fertilizers and weed killers. The title of the book represents the final disappearance of songbirds caused by the effects of DDT.

Several factors contributed to the 'be natural' approach of the 1960s and 1970s and fueled the growth of the organic market. Consumer's growing interest in health and nutrition, the green movement and the focus on conservation and environmental issues were all contributing factors to this growth. The demand for healthy foods encouraged farmers to return to organic methods of farming.

The organic movement was the direct result of the customers' demand. They were upset with the health hazards caused by the chemicals used in food and household products. With the increase in consumer demand and environmental awareness in the 1970s, the organic industry began growing at a more rapid pace.

Although there was agreement on the approach to organic farming there were differences between the states as there was no centralized standards to follow. Each state or certifying agent could develop standards based on the practices and constitutions in their respective regions. Requirements for certification in California were much different than those in the Midwest or the New England states.

The differences between each states practices are reflected in an unclear definition of just what the meaning of organic should be. In an effort to facilitate interstate marketing the need for a national standard emerged. This resulted in congress passing the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) in 1990. The OFPA mandated the US Department of agriculture (USDA) to develop regulations that would explain the law to producers, handlers and certifiers. The OFPA called for an advisory National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) to recommend the substances that could have been used in organic production and the handling of organic products. The NOSB was to assist the FDA in the writing of the regulations and the final rules and regulations were written and implemented in 2002.

Organic products could only be found in health food stores in the 1970s and 1980s. They began showing up in supermarkets by the 1990s. Today you can find many organic products in big chain supermarkets occupying prime shelf space.

Top Ten Reasons to Buy Organic Clothing and Bedding

Organic food has come a long way in the last few years. The reasons are not too difficult to figure: people have become more aware of health issues and they like their food to be as free as possible from pesticides, fertilizers and additives.

But organic clothing? And bedding? Why would you bother to spend more on stuff you do not even eat?

Here are some reasons:

1. You avoid contact with synthetic chemical surface treatments. A switch to an organic mattress and organic bedding will immediately reduce your exposure by about one third – or whatever proportion of the day you spend in bed. One of the most common fire retardants used on mattresses – boric acid – is also used to kill rats!

2. You support organic farming. By choosing organic clothing, you divert your disposable income towards supporting organic farming, which will encourage more farmers to employ environmentally friendly farming methods.

3. You support ethical and safe working practices. Farmers working on organic farms are exposed to fewer chemicals. Each year, an estimated 60 million pounds of organophosphate pesticides are applicable to US agricultural crops and an additional 17 million pounds are used per year for non-agricultural uses, such as in household pestic control products and lawn and garden sprays.

4. You support the use of natural color and natural dyed fabrics. Dyeing fabrics and yarns consumes a great deal of energy and produces large quantities of toxic waste. Natural-grown colors remove this processing stage, while natural dyes are generally much less polluting than synthetics.

5. You support fair and ethical trade practices. There is a strong and growing link between organic and ethical practices among growers, manufacturers and retailers. Soil Association organic textiles standards now contain the most comprehensive requirements for safe working practices and fair trade.

6. You reduce the allergens present in the environment. By choosing chemical-free, organic fabrics, you help to reduce the background level of potentially allergenic chemical compounds. A recent US National Academy of Sciences study suggested that one in four developmental and behavioral problems in children may be linked to genetic and environmental factors, including exposure to lead, mercury and organophosphate pesticides.

7. You save on toxic waste. Organic fabrics can be computed safely, without contributing to toxins in the soil.

8. You support biodiversity. Organic farming aids biodiversity at every level of the food chain, by using few pesticide and fertilizers and by adopting wildlife-friendly habitat management techniques.

9. You save energy. Conventional farming is a huge consumer of non-renewable fossil fuels. Organic farms tend to use less energy, instead focusing on careful ecological management and natural balances to solve pest problems.

10. You can be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. What you wear says something about you, even if it does not have a slogan printed on it!

The Truth About Health Food Buzzwords: All Natural, Organic, Real Fruit Juice, and Whole Grain

Marketers have responded to the recent pushes to eat better and lead healthier lives with buzzwords that make their products sound healthy. Words and phrases like "all natural," "organic," "made with real fruit juice," and "made with whole grain" dominate the packages in the aisles of your local grocery store. Be careful though, these words may not mean what you think they do and they certainly are not the only factor you should consider when you're filling your pantry.

All Natural

This one is probably the most misleading health food buzzword out there because "natural" probably does not mean what you think it means. In fact, according to the FDA, it does not mean anything at all the FDA does not define or regulate the term on food products. The USDA loosely defines what natural means for meat products as not having artificial preservatives (which does not mean it does not have any preservatives – salt is naturally found in the earth after all), coloring ingredients, and it should be minimally processed. Here's the problem: meat from animals treated with strange hormones while they were alive can still technically be considered natural. Also, the enforcement of companies who make "all natural" claims is not very stringent, so it's extremely up to the producer to define what natural is. My recommendation: ignore any advertisement that says "all natural" and investigate the product on your own by taking a look at the ingredients list.

Organic

Food labeled as organic is much more stringently regulated than food labeled as all natural; and the "Certified USDA Organic" seal can only be used after a company undergoes an approval process and frequent inspections by USDA inspectors. There's a lot to the definition of what is and is not organic, but basically produce can not be grown with synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, etc. and the pest control process can not use certain chemicals. Meat must be fed with organic feed, have access to the great outdoors, and they can not be given growth hormones or antibiotics. Again, that's a very brief definition, but organic food is more what you think of when you think of food being made naturally. If this is important to you, then you should spend the extra money on organic foods and visit Farmer's Markets, but realize that organic is not synonymous with healthy. You can make organic cookies or other organic foods that we would normally consider to be "junk food," and although it may have been made naturally, it is not necessarily good for you.

Made with Real Fruit Juice

This one actually means what it sounds like, but it's usually not as healthy as it sounds. I have yet to find a label that says "made with real fruit juice" without having added sugar on the ingredients list. Here's the other problem with this label: when you're only getting the fruit juice, you tend to lose all the other nutritional benefits of fruit. Take an apple as an example. An apple with the peel has about 5 grams of fiber (depending on the size of the apple), but if you only have a little apple fruit juice, you're not getting any fiber. You're better off with real fruit, not real fruit juice.

Made with Whole Grain

I'm a big proponent of eating whole grains, but that does not mean everything with whole grains is healthy. Look for labels that say 100% whole grain – you should still check for sugar, fat and sodium content, but 100% whole grain is a good start. If the label does not say anything about what percentage of the product is whole grain, check to see how many grams of whole grain the label says a product is made with (which should be posted) and compare that to the number of grams of carbohydrates on the nutritional label. Finally, you can check the ingredients list to see if the first ingredient listed says something about whole grains (note: an ingredient's list is always listed from the most abundant ingredient to the least abundant ingredient).

The Bottom Line

Always check the nutritional label and ingredient's list. Marketers can not try to deceive you here – they're required by law to post this information and that is well regulated.

Allergies and Asthma – What Is the Difference Between Organic and Natural Foods?

Organic vs Natural is one of the most confusing topics on the market. If we look at this from another point, we can call it "Truth in Labeling". Natural is a Marketing technique to miss-lead the Consumer. Individuals with Asthma and Allergies must understand the difference. Organic means it is regulated by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). These foods are produced under a strict set of rules and guidelines. They are produced with no pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics or other drugs such as hormones.

Natural does not mean it is regulated like organic foods. They are poorly regulated and there are a lot of labels in the Supermarket with the term "Natural" on it. An example would be: Ice Cream, it can contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil, soya lecithin and cocoa processed with alkali. All of these so-called "Natural Products" have these ingredients that are not found in Mother Nature. The following is an example of one of the so called healthy products.

According to Wiki-Answers: Hydrogenation is the process of heating an oil and passing hydrogen bubbles through it. The fatty acids in the oil then acquire some of the hydrogen, which makes it more dense. If you fully hydrogenate, you create a solid (a fat) out of the oil. But if you stop part way, you are a semi-solid partially hydrogenated oil that has a consistency like butter, only it's a lot cheaper. Now that your know the truth, its time to stop eating these phony foods that contain this. The food was made using basic chemistry rules.

In conclusion, it is important to understand the difference between Organic and Natural Foods. Why you ask? You will be an informed Consumer and not pay extra for so-called "Natural Foods" that can contain products not found in Mother Nature's way of making food. Organic Foods are regulated and real foods. "Natural Foods are not regulated and are not really real foods such as hydrogenated soybean oil.

Health Benefits of Avoiding Processed Foods

There are now more choices than ever when it comes to healthier foods and there is no need for you to select processed foods when you go shopping. Buying healthy foods is a great way to start leading a healthy lifestyle and organic food is becoming easier to find and cheaper to buy. You can find organic foods in most stores despite the wider choice will be in a specialist shop or online.

Natural and organic foods are far healthier for you and they can make you look and feel so much better. Eating processed foods simply fills your body with the wrong type of things which can make you feel lethargic and run down. They are full of manmade sugars and fats which will make your body feel fuller and you will have less energy. Although organic foods are the best you can eat simply eating healthy you can help your body as well the food we tend to eat at the moment is at an all time low and manufacturers are simply filling foods with chemicals and preservatives.

All of these things are bad for you and over time your body will begin to reject the foods which you are forcing it to have. You need your body and mind to run at the best possible state it can and to achieve this you will need to watch what you put into your body. It needs a certain amount of proteins and nutrients a day and if you are not giving it what it needs then you will become ill. Your energy levels and immune system will become weaker and this will make you remain unwell for longer periods.

There are many foods which you can eat which can help to boost your immune system and can help with both your energy and your brain power. You need to ensure that you have enough vitamins and nutrients a day and if your food can not achieve this then you may need to take supplements. By avoiding processed foods you will look and feel better in no time at all, although you may not be able to cut those out completely you should try to eat less of them. You will find that you can lose weight easier if you stop eating the foods which are bad for you and with a healthier diet and an exercise plan you will achieve your goal in no time at all.

Eating healthy is not difficult it is simply a state of mind once you realize there are alternatives to the foods you buy at present. If you look around you can buy healthy snacks and drinks which will be the start of your journey. Once you see how much healthier you look and feel you will never want to go back to feeling the way you did. Processed foods can cause problems with your digestive system, your skin, hair, nails and fitness levels. Is it worth feeling and looking awful simply to eat something quick and processed?

Organic Chicken – Benefits to Health and Environment

The beauty of living in the countryside offers the experience of eating organic chicken, but it is also available in the cities in small quantities. Organic chickens usually just roam around to find food. People raising these chickens use rice, corn or any food available to feed them. They simply call the chickens in some distinct way and the chickens come racing as if panicking for the food. They then throw the grains or any food and each chicken picks as many as it can. When the regular meal is over, the chickens roam around and search the ground for any available food which may be plants, insects, seeds, and if the area is coastal, small fish and live small shellfish.

Organic chickens have high beneficial fats that lower cholesterol, and higher amount of Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Vitamin A. Their eggs taste much much better than those from commercially-raised chickens which receive regular dose of antibiotics, vaccines and other medications. Although it takes longer cooking time for the meat of most native chickens, its taste is incomparable with 28-day broiler confined in overcrowded poultry homes where they also release their wastes.

Native organic chickens are much smaller in size and grow much slower. While it only takes 28 days for a broiler to be harvested, native chicken usually needs at least six months. That is why, native chickens can not be grown on commercial basis. Since the supply can not meet the demand requirements of the chicken meat eating population, no big poultry raiser is interested in venturing into this kind of poultry raising. Organic chicken vendors usually rely on groups of small farmers for their supply and could not at this point meet the growing demand of organic chicken consumers.

For organic chicken consumers, eating organic chicken does not only provide health benefits but also better ecosystem. Chickens raised in the open catch insects that may be harmful to the plants, scavenge crop residue and help in fertilizing the soil through its organic manure. By the way, farms using chicken dung as fertilizer do not needarily produce organic crops. Chicken dung are bought from commercial poultry farms that use chemicals and medicines which are proven to be harmful to the human body.

Since most consumers of organic chicken are small farmers, organic chicken consumers also help build the rural economy and the income potential of small farmers. Consumers also indirectly contribute to the protection and conservation of the environment because growing organic chicken does not produce air pollution that is common in poultry farms. There are also no flies to spread germs and organisms that cause diseases to the people.

Are You Eating Biodynamic Food?

We've all heard about organic food, which is basically food that is in grown or produced without any form of chemicals used. But do you know what is biodynamic food?

Biodynamic food is "organic food extreme". We could also say "organic food with spirit". There are many aspects of biodynamic food that resemble organic food, but these two types should not be used interchangeably. Made popular by Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, biodynamic farming combines organic methods, special manure preparation for the fields, with special plant, animal, mineral and herbal preparations and the rhythms of stellar bodies.

One organism

The fundamental concept of biodynamic agriculture is that the farm is a single organism, with its livestock, crops, farmer, soil as one. Biodynamics embraces a holistic and spiritual view of nature, which unlike organic farming, does not only involve the soil and plants, but also livestock, manure, insects and astronomy.

Preparing the fields

Horn manure, which is basically a cow's horn stuffed with cow manure, is buried below ground during autumn, left to decompose in the soil, and used the following spring. Medicinal herbs are used for the preparation of compost, or manure, which are buried at specific intervals in the farm soil at specific depths. These steps and more aid in creating "better" soil, and improvements plant health and yield, plus reducing weeds and pests!

Astronomy / Astrology

Biodynamic farmers follow an astronomical planting calendar. The concepts are similar to a woman's menstrual cycle being affected by the moon. Farmers may pick appropriate times of the day for specific pickings – like mornings for picking leafy vegetables and evenings for root vegetables. To further illustrate, take the moon, which ascends for two weeks and descends for two weeks within a month. During the ascending moon, plant sap rises robustly, and the upper plant is filled with vitality. This, in biodynamics, is a perfect time for harvesting fruits, grafting and gathering herbs.

Eat Fresh

Research has shown that biodynamic produce can stay fresh longer, has better flavor, lower nitrates, less allergic reactions and reduce stress levels. If you are not convinced by now, consider this. Even after washing your fruits, the residual pesticides are still able to cause high rates of miscarriage, reduce fertility, chronic fatigue and attention deficit disorders.

Going Global

Today, more than 40 countries are practicing biodynamics, with Australia leading the pack at 12 million hectares of land dedicated to organic and biodynamic farming. As the world becomes more health conscious and educated in food nutrition, demand for organic and biodynamic food is on the rise.

Biodynamic You

No doubt, biodynamic food is expensive and even more so than organic food. You may find it difficult to get biodynamic food all year round too, but give it time. Soon, more and more spas will be introducing biodynamic food into their cuisine. Jurlique has begun adopting biodynamics, integrating its health benefits into their spa and beauty products. They even have their own biodynamic farm in Australia. So the next time you visit a spa, consider the holistic spa concept, and consume spa cuisine that uses biodynamic ingredients. And when you gobble down that super healthy food, think about the spiritual connection between man, earth and food.
