Organic Food More Nutritious Than Conventionally-Grown Foods

May 9, 2008
The Boulder, Colo.-based Organic Center released new evidence settling a lingering question: Is organic food more nutritious than conventionally-grown foods? The answer? Yes — by at least 25 percent. The center reported its findings in its State of Science study, “New Evidence Confirms the Nutritional Superiority of Plant-based Organic Foods." A meta-analysis of 97 published studies revealed organic, plant-based foods are 25 percent more nutrient-dense than conventional foods, and include significantly higher concentrations of polyphenols and antioxidants. It's the first comprehensive review of all major organic studies since 2003. The report can be found at
