Synthetic Nutrients in Organic Foods?
 Public Comments Due December 26!

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is seeking public comment on a rule that would continue its policy of allowing the indiscriminate and illegal addition of synthetic nutrients to organic foods.
Nutrients occur naturally in foods, and many are essential for good health. Organic consumers expect that any added nutrients in processed foods are derived from natural or organic sources rather than synthetic versions. Currently, this is not necessarily the case! The USDA allows synthetic nutrients that are mass-produced in laboratories and factories by chemical corporations, often using hazardous petrochemical solvents, to be added to organic foods!
If you agree that organic foods should be free from unnecessary synthetic ingredients, as the federal organic regulations require, please make your voice heard. Click here for instructions on commenting to the USDA.
