Organic food options continue to become more prominent on grocery stores shelves. You see organic produce and meat all the time. However, there are also many other products that are organic, including NuPasta.
Many people are still confused about the difference between regular and organic food in a general sense, as well as when comparing regular and organic NuPasta products. The following will explain what organic food means in general, and explain how organic NuPasta products qualify to be organic.
What does organic mean?
According to HelpGuide.org:
“The term ‘organic’ refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. Specific requirements must be met and maintained in order for products to be labeled as ‘organic’.”
Organic crops must be grown in safe soil, have no modifications, and must remain separate from regular products. Farmers are not allowed to use synthetic pesticides, bio-engineered genes (GMOs), petroleum-based fertilizers, and sewage sludge-based fertilizers.
Organic livestock must have access to the outdoors and be given organic feed. They may not be given antibiotics, growth hormones, or any animal by-products.

About Organic NuPasta Products
NuPasta offers a line of organic products, and we get a lot of questions from our customers about them.
Our organic NuPasta products are USDA organic certified. This means that all of the ingredients used in the creation of NuPasta are certified organic, from the konjac plant to everything else that is used as part of the farming process.
Here is what you need to know:
One interesting point to note is that the konjac used in our regular NuPasta products is grown in much the same way as the organic version. The only difference is that the farmers do not have the educational credentials and they do not maintain perfect records to qualify for an organic certificate. However, because of where it’s grown—2000 feet above sea level in the mountains—natural and organic ingredients and farming practices are commonplace.
