What is the nutritional value of non-organic food?
It should be exactly the same as organic foods. The terms organic and non-organic only refer to the practices of growing the crops. To a plant - it does not recognize the difference between a non-organic or organic form of fertilizer. The form of fertilizer nutrient that a plant uses is the same regarless of the source. The source may be from manure, sewage sludge or commercial fertilizer. In short, there is no difference in the nutritional value of organic vs. non-organic foods. The term "organic" is more targetted at which pesticides and fertilzers are used. While there's a ton of controversy on this topic, so far the debate rages on, and the value of organic vs. non-organic foods is not scientifically clear. There's no such thing as non-organic food "Organic" means "containing carbon". All foods that humans consume contain carbon, and they are therefore all organic. Now, if you're using the definition of "organic" that was made up by a bunch of nature-loving growers to distinguish their "naturally-grown" foods from conventionally grown foods, so that they could sell a nutritionally-deprived, unhealthy, disease-ridden, pest-eaten, growth-stunted product for ten times the price of the conventional alternative, then I would have to say that the nutritional value of non-organic foods is quite a bit higher than that of organic foods. The conventional foods receive plenty of commercial fertilizers that help ensure adequate growth and development of vitamins and minerals in the food. They get plenty of herbicides to ensure that weeds don't compete with the crop for nutrients from the soil. They get plenty of insecticides to ensure that insects don't suck all the nutrients out of the food. And after the crops are harvested, they get preservatives added to them to help keep the foods fresh and chock-full of vitamins and minerals. None of those things are permitted in "organic foods". But, most importantly, conventional crops are not routinely exposed to manure, which contains E coli, a disease that can kill people.
