London: Organic food has no extra healthbenefits, says a new study, knocking down suggestions that biofood is better for people.
The reason was that they actually contained toolittle fat and often too little iron for babies’ nutritionalneeds. Some 45 per cent of ecological products got a "good"or "very good" nutritional rating compared to 41 per cent forconventional foods. Some 15 per cent of organic foods were rated "poor" --slightly higher than the 14 per cent of regular products givensuch a score, the `Daily Mail` reported. There was considerable variation among products,with organic food performing well in some areas but poorly inothers. Organic rape seed oil did not score well, the findingsrevealed.
However, the German research found that three-quartersof organic produce was pesticide-free while only 16 percent ofregular food was found to have no trace of chemical pollutants.PTI
