Is there a difference between products that are certified organic and products ‘made with organic ingredients’?
As the name would suggest, certified organic products must meet the requirement that at least 95% of the core ingredients are certified organic, before being stamped with the USDA-Organic label. Products ‘made from organic ingredients’ contain at least 70% of organic ingredients, whereas products ‘containing organic ingredients’ contain less that 70% of organic constituencies.

Organic eggs loosely refer eggs laid by hens provided with organic feed as well as the provision of outdoors for roaming. At this current juncture, due to guidelines imposed by the Agri-food and Veterinary Authority (AVA), eggs laid by chickens allowed to roam freely are prohibited.. The closest and best alternative are barn-laid eggs, where chickens are allowed to roam free in large sheds. No antibiotics are used in the farming of such eggs either.
There is a general perception that buying organic food is more expensive. While this is not entirely true, some products may indeed be pricier than their conventional counterparts. A number of reasons can be attributed to this; namely, the comparative dearth of demand for organic food, higher production costs due to limited economies of scale, higher post-production labor costs and the smaller net yield. It is therefore important that we respect fair-trade and empower the farmers who run these small farms, so that such methods of production can continue to be preserved and harnessed.
Products certified organic by the various certification bodies are prohibited from containing any genetically modified constituents. (It’s in the definition!) Although such a ‘non-GMO’ label may not be explicitly presented on the product itself, it is a safe assumption that organic products are necessarily GMO-free.
