Delhi, Delhi India (PressExposure) April 21, 2007 -- Organic food is highly nutritious and good in comparison to the conventionally grown food, claims a recent study conducted in the US by American researchers Dr Adel Kader and Dr Maria Amodio, from University of California Davies.
As a part of the study, test was conducted on kiwifruits that were grown under both methods in the same farm, i.e. the two sets of crops were matured under similar environmental conditions. The test found pretty high levels of polyphenols and Vitamin C in organically grown kiwis in contrast to those grown by conventional method. This statement was published by Chemical and Industry magazine on March 26, 2007.
"All the main mineral constituents were more concentrated in the organic kiwi fruit, which also had higher asorbic acid (vitamin C) and total polyphenol content, resulting in higher antioxidant activityâ, researchers Kader and Amodio wrote in Science of Food & Agricultureâs journal.
The study concludes that the organic food offers value for money; one has to shell out a few extra bugs to get wholesome food for a healthy life. Perhaps this is the reason why more and more people today are turning towards organically grown foods.
