cereals organic or natural? what's the right choice...


WATCH THIS VIDEO!

Funny enough I have noticed the organic seal missing in many products that I thought were organic, and today I found out that it wasn't just my imagination. The Cornucopia Institute (a non-profit organization promoting economic justice for family scale farming) today released an informational video on breakfast cereals that will wake you up a bit and bring back your diligence about looking for the 'organic' seal. Because if you are like me I have totally been relying on my store to be informed, while I just trust them... but this is not the case, even if you are shopping it Whole Foods.

thanks for posting this. I know that "natural" is a marketing term only, but sometimes you think that it's better, and you put in your cart because you trust the store, and your exhausted from all the decision-making you make in a grocery store.

great comment lynne, I agree the amount of decisions is one of the biggest hurdles for us today! think about when you go to europe and the cereal shelf has 10 things on it! I also noticed that things I thought previously were organic are NOT anymore... surprise!
