There is a big difference between a food that is labeled “natural” and one that is labeled “organic.” Quite often these two titles get used out of context, to the point where no one seems to be able to determine which is which. This can create a lot of confusion for people who are really concerned about purchasing the best and healthiest products available.
According to the Food Marketing Institute (FMI), “natural” foods are minimally processed and free of artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, and additives like hydrogenated oils, stabilizers, and emulsifiers. But there is no certification or inspection system to ensure that the label is accurate. Also, the term “natural” does not usually relate to growing methods or the use of preservatives, whereas organically grown foods have strict regulations in these areas. The National Organic Program, part of the United States Department of Agriculture, holds the food industry to strict standards in the production and sale of organic foods.
With increasing numbers of people with Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, we offer a large selection of gluten-free products in our grocery. Some of the GF items we carry include bread, bagels, English muffins, tortillas, pizza, crackers, chips, cereals, pasta, flours, baking mixes, and MUCH more!
