These are safe products, rich in nutrients, containing more vitamins, minerals and other valuable ingredients than products obtained in a conventional way. They do not provide any toxic chemicals and are a guarantee of a good, natural taste, free of additives such as flavor enhancers.
It is worth emphasizing that organic food is produced without the use of genetically modified organisms and is not exposed to ionizing radiation. These are also products whose negative impact on the environment is maximally limited or completely eliminated.
