Organic & Eco-Friendly Food
We are all part of the environment so supporting organic agriculture doesn’t just benefit you, it helps the whole world. For the vast majority of human history, agriculture has been organic. Only now has a large supply of new synthetic chemicals and genetic modification been introduced to the food supply. If this conventional methods are a concern to you then consuming organic and eco-friendly food should be a priority. Organic foods are now regularly found in grocery stores. Unfortunately your scope of options are still limited. Here at Living Organic we have collected some great sources of organic and eco-friendly food for you. Find a great deal on the available items from the Organic & Eco-Friendly Food categories listed below.
Recent outbreaks of fatal food-borne illness associated with Vero cytotoxin-producing E.Coli (VTEC) have highlighted the need for thorough and coherent information to be provided to the food industry. The book details the causes of selected incidents and assesses the lessons that can be learnt from them. It examines the characteristics of E.Coli and VTEC and identifies factors which make foods susceptible to contamination by these pathogens. Specific product sectors are used to indicate practical measures that can be applied to control VTEC in foods and minimise its potential to cause harm to the consumer. It also provides guidance in selecting effective sampling plans and test methods to monitor and detect the organism and offers pragmatic advice on action taken when the organism is detected during monitoring programmes. This information is designed for use by the food industry, particularly personnel working in manufacturing, safety and quality control. It will also be useful for Environmental Health Officers and food research institutions.
Organically grown and hand-picked in its native Japan, our premium Matcha leaves are specially cultivated for consistency in the greenest of color, softness in texture, mild flavor and sweet aroma.POWERFULA single serving of our Matcha Green Tea contains 10 to 15 times the overall nutrients and 100 times more antioxidants compared to traditional green, white, black, rooibos and yerba mate teas. Matcha is exceptionally potent because we take advantage of the tea's full potential by using the entire leaf. When tea is brewed, the water is only able to extract a small fraction of the nutrients while the rest remain in the leaves.ANTIOXIDANTSORAC is a measurement accepted by the USDA for measuring antioxidant capacity of foods. The higher the ORAC value, the more capable that food is of fighting free radicals and diseases and slowing the aging process.Our Matcha Green Tea provides an ORAC of 1,774 units in one single serving. As a result, daily consumption of Matcha Green Tea may help to strengthen the immune system by safely protecting against free radicals and terminating their damaging effects.Out of the many antioxidants found in Matcha Green Tea, there is a special class known as catechins. Within those catechins, there is the powerful and most abundant, EGCG, only found in green tea. EGCG may have therapeutic benefits in treating many disorders.L-THEANINEBuddhist monks have enjoyed the relaxation properties of matcha for many years and continue to use it for meditating. Matcha contains high concentrations of L-theanine, an amino acid known to help relax the mind, improve cognition and mood while reducing physical and mental stress.CHLOROPHYLLOur special processing of the matcha plants provides the leaves with high levels of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a powerful detoxifier that helps eliminate toxins, chemicals and heavy metals from the body.SPECIAL PROCESSINGOur matcha is exclusively grown in Japan by local farmers who cultivate it by traditional methods used for over 800 years. Weeks prior to harvest, farmers cover the plants to protect them from sunlight. This important step helps to increase the chlorophyll levels and turns the leaves dark green. Once it is time to harvest, farmers gently pick the leaves, entirely by hand, and sort them by grade. Ceremonial grade is the highest grade; only the youngest and highest quality leaves are chosen. After sorting, all of the coarse fibers and stems are removed to prepare the leaves for grinding. Our leaves are ground on a stone mill which produces a uniquely shaped powder molecule and contributes to the mild and smooth taste of our product.
The "Practical Food Microbiology Series" gives practical and accurate information about specific organisms of concern to public health. The information is designed for use by those in the food industry working in manufacturing, retailing and quality assurance, those in associated professional sectors e.g. public health, and students in each of these areas. "Clostridium botulinum" produces a toxin which causes the severe, often fatal illness, botulism. It is a potential hazard associated with a wide range of both ambient stable and chilled foods. Foodborne botulism still occurs all around the world. As new outbreaks are reported implicating yet more food types and food processes, so the food industry needs to regularly review processes and product characteristics to assure safety.
