10 Fruits & Vegetables That You Should Buy Organic

India’s organic food market is expected to rise by 25% through 2020 and this is a sign of a New India, an India that cares about healthy food and a healthy planet. Climate change too has heralded the need for a healthy, chemical-free & all-natural farming and consumption. If you’re still new to the organic revolution, this blog lists 10 organic fruits and vegetables that your kitchen needs to have, and makes organic shopping simpler for you.

Organic fruits make up 52% of the organic products in India. 

Here are 5 Fruits That You Must Buy Organic

  1. Strawberries: These small drops red heaven are rich in Vitamin C, phenolic compounds and antioxidants, and organic strawberries have shown to be high on all of these. Organic strawberries also succumb less often to fungal diseases during harvest despite the absence of fungicides; this shows that they are naturally healthier. Organic strawberries are more nutritious, pleasing in appearance and sweeter in taste.

  2. Apples: If an apple a day can keep the doctor away, an organic apple can keep the doctor far far away! Non-organic apples host more pathogenic bacteria that are harmful to the human body whereas, the organic apples contain ‘good bacteria’ like probiotics that promote gut health.

  3. Grapes: Grapes generally are grown using a lot of pesticides and so organic grapes would be a great choice. Grapes are high on antioxidants, have cardiovascular benefits, help in blood control and also have anti-aging and anti-cancer elements. If grown conventionally, they are victims of a lot of pesticides but organic farming assures you grapes in their best and purest forms.

  4. Bananas: Bananas are popular in indian households. The protein-rice fruit is easily portable, can be consumed effortlessly and makes for a good midday snack. They are subjected to a lot of pesticides, insecticides and herbicides and if you thought that it’s thick skin would guard the fruit inside from all the toxins, think again! The toxins leach into the soil, where the fruit is grown. So, you’re still ingesting some of them. Organic bananas will keep you truly fit!

  5. Chikoo:High on dietary fiber, chikoo is a natural laxative that is high on antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents which make chikoos a must-have in your diet. Like bananas, chikoo too can be consumed effortlessly. No peeling, no chopping. This is of course if you go for the organic ones. Also you may find the organic ones rock hard, but worry not they will ripen eventually.

Organic vegetables compose 68% of organic foods in India. 

So, here are 5 vegetables you must buy organic.

  1. Spinach: A study conducted by the USDA reported that 97% of 708 conventionally grown spinach had pesticide residues. This extremely nutrient-rich vegetable could turn out to be an extremely hazardous one if not sourced from organic farmers. Organic spinach dons a vibrant green which shows that it’s rich in vitamin C, unlike the non-organic pale green ones. This vitamin helps guard the health-boosting phyto-nutrients, already present in the spinach, and you end up having it all.

  2. Potato: No indian kitchen is without this tasty vegetable. Being root vegetables, potatoes are easy victims of chemical fertilisers and pesticides but sustainable agriculture avoids all of these giving you chemical-free potatoes. Rich in potassium, fiber, vitamin C, B6,  iron and magnesium, the potato is a highly nutrient vegetable, which deserves to be consumed as is. Some chemicals refrain the potatoes from sprouting, these sprouting inhibitors possess mutagenic properties that change the genetic composition of the potato. So, as far as possible, when it comes to potatoes keep it organic.

  3. Cucumbers: These hydrating friends are among the Top 10 for high pesticide use. Many non-organic cucumbers have synthetic wax rubbed on the surface in order to contain the moisture. Even if you peel your cucumbers you’ll end up consuming some of it. So even if you think you’re having a healthy cucumber salad, it might just not be as healthy as you think it is. Organic cucumbers are the way to go!

  4. Tomatoes: If grown during a dry climate the use of fertilisers is inevitable. The difference is while non-organic farmers will use chemical fertilisers, organic ones will go for natural fertiliser like compost. Chemical fertilisers affect soil health and therefore subsequent cops too will be impacted. If you choose organic tomatoes, you choose healthy soil and a healthy planet!

  5. Celery: if you want to ride high on the vitamins and fiber that celery boasts of, buy it’s organic version. The celery stalks are quite porous and so easily absorb the pesticides sprayed. Verdict? Stay chemical-free with organic celery!
