What does Organic mean?
Organic foods are better in every way. They taste better and are better for us. They’re also better for our farmers, animals and the environment. Organic foods are produced without using synthetic chemicals like pesticides, herbicides and artificial fertilisers or growth hormones and antibiotics. They are produced to a certain production standard, which means they are processed without ionizing radiation or food additives and the produce must not be genetically modified. This all combines to make for higher quality produce, and because organic farming doesn’t use any artificial fertilisers, it’s better for the environment and the health of the farmers.
What does Biodynamic mean?
Biodynamic agriculture is a method of organic farming that treats farms as unified and individual organisms, balancing the holistic development and interrelationship of the soil, plants, animals as a closed, self-nourishing system. Biodynamic farming emphasis is on manures and composts with the exclusion of the use of artificial chemicals on soil and plants. Methods unique to the biodynamic approach include the use of fermented herbal and mineral preparations as compost additives and field sprays and the use of an astronomical sowing and planting calendar.
What is Organic Certification?
Organic certification is a certification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products. Requirements vary from country to country, and generally involve a set of production standards for growing, storage, processing, packaging and shipping that include: avoidance of most synthetic chemical inputs (e.g. fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, food additives, etc), genetically modified organisms, irradiation, and the use of sewage sludge; use of farmland that has been free from chemicals for a number of years (often, three or more); keeping detailed written production and sales records (audit trail); maintaining strict physical separation of organic products from non-certified products; undergoing periodic on-site inspections. Certified organic producers are also subject to the same agricultural, food safety and other government regulations that apply to non-certified producers. The products on this website are organic or biodynamic, unless otherwise stated.
What does Raw or Low Temperature Dried mean?
Raw foods contain enzymes which aid digestion, meaning that the body’s own enzymes may work unimpeded in regulating the body’s metabolic process, and heating food above 40 degrees Celsius degrades or destroys these enzymes in food. Eating food without enzymes makes digestion more difficult, which could lead to toxicity in the body and cause excess consumption of food, obesity and chronic disease. Raw foods contain bacteria and other mico-organisms that effect the immune system and digestion by populating the digestive tract with gut flora. Raw foods have higher nutrient values than foods which have been cooked. Wild foods, particularly edible wild plants, are the most nutritious raw foods. Freezing food is acceptable, even though freezing lowers enzyme activity.
What does Activated mean?, i.e. activated nuts & seeds
Nuts & seeds contain phytic acid, which when consumed binds to minerals such as iron, zinc, calcium, chromium, potassium and magnesium so that they cannot be readily absorbed. Activating nuts & seeds is a simple process of soaking, then thoroughly rinsing them, which lessens these phytates, making their incredible nutrients available. Nuts & seeds also contain enzyme inhibitors, which prevent the nut or seed from sprouting prematurely, so by activating them it neutralises these enzyme inhibitors making them easier to digest.
