Which foods taste WORSE organic?

definate agreement here. I had to switch to organic for health reasons over 5 years ago and have no really bad experiances since. Those that do not like the chocolate or peanut butter are missing the oils and extra sugars and salts that are added. I would say the same about the "factory bread" also. Look at the label and see how much sugar and salt are added. It is crazy.

Which foods taste WORSE organic?

Organic is a very widely and sometimes incorrectly used term. Being certified is just an identifing process by which we can shop, however true organic foods as descibed by the Organic trade Asc is as follows:
Organic production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers. Organically produced foods also must be produced without the use of antibiotics, synthetic hormones, genetic engineering and other excluded practices, sewage sludge, or irradiation. Cloning animals or using their products would be considered inconsistent with organic practices. Organic foods are minimally processed without artificial ingredients, preservatives, or irradiation to maintain the integrity of the food.

the whole article is like several pages long but this is the basic.

Organic Instant Coffee in NYC

hi, while I am not in NYC and I am certainly not an expert on coffee I would recomend
Mount Hagen organic instant freeze dried coffee, If you can not find it in your area it is available on Vitacost.com for around 8.00 and on Amazon.com for a much higher price. This is for a 3.53 oz container. There should be some health type store that could carry it for you or order it in for you as a special request. Hope this might help.

Sweet potato sticks?

I received the web site address from food time line while searching for a food I greatly enjoyed when I lived in Florida several years back. It was served at Corkey Bells down in Cocoa Fl. This was before the fire took the building.
Sweet potato sticks I was told was what was served. I have yet to find a food or especially a recipe to make these creamy inside, not too sweet, crunchy outside delicious side dish.
Does anyone know where or how these items are made?
What I am looking for is a recipe.
Thanks to all in advance
