Aditi Dutt, Mukta Garg and Akriti DuttAbstract:
Our ancestors’ view of healthy living was established where everyone will have a belly full of food. Later as our knowledge improved and it converts the above reasoning to; a proper balanced diet is an important factor for a healthy body. Now, there is a recent trend in our society which says Healthy Food will result in Healthy Body. This generation is focused only on health and fitness and is aware of their food consumption habits. Now their preference is more inclined towards safe, healthy, balanced and environmental friendly food products. It leads to the increasing demand of foods which are chemical free i.e. organic foods. These are known as foods which are grown without any chemical intervention during farming as well as processing practises and they provide wide health benefits. A systematic review was done to analyse this perception regarding health related aspects of organic foods. It was found that organic foods have higher nutritional quality; high level of anti-oxidants, PUFA and anti-inflammatory properties. Without chemical treatments they have higher chances of contamination and spoilage which makes them slightly costlier than conventional foods. There was also significant relationship between higher consumption of organic food and ones’ higher living standards. Studies leads to believe that organic food consumption influence the cognitive development of children also. This leads to the unmistakable fact that our generation deviates more towards organic food rather than conventional food. Pages: 19-22 | Views: 124 | Downloads: 7Download Full Article: Click Here
