University study shows the benefits of organic food

Added on October 13th, 2014
Found in Organic

An international team led by Newcastle University has shown that organic crops are up to 69% higher in a number of key antioxidants than conventionally grown crops.

Numerous studies have linked antioxidants to a reduced risk of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases and certain cancers. As a cancer patient in long-term remission, I was given the advice by my specialist to eat organic food when I could: I think my diet has certainly helped in me getting a good response.

The study found that a switch to eating organic fruit, vegetable and cereals – and food made from them – would provide additional antioxidants equivalent to eating between one to two extra portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

Buy organic Spanish almonds and save the bees!

Added on October 12th, 2014

Everyone’s eating almonds at the moment. They’re popular in all kinds of diets, from the most straightforward, to the most extreme. Celebrities love them, and so, it seems, do many of their followers. In the UK alone, sales of almonds increased by 45% over 2012-13 – and China is now a major consumer too. As a result, almond production in California (where almost 80% of the world’s almonds are grown) has almost doubled since 1996. In many parts of the state, there is now more or less a ‘monoculture’ prevailing, with huge acreage turned over simply to almonds.

We stock organic almonds from Spain: whole, blanched, flaked and ground.

Worried about US almonds? Eat our organic Spanish ones instead.

And what’s wrong with that? Well, one problem is that commercial almond farms require large amounts of water to operate – and California is experiencing one of its worst-ever droughts at present (marked as ‘extreme’ or ‘exceptional’ in official terms). To maintain production, farmers are being obliged to pump up increasing amounts of groundwater, thereby depleting the state’s precious reserves. (Unbelievable as it may seem in the UK, some parts of California are forecast to receive no surface precipitation over the coming year. None.)

David Zetland, an economics professor at Leiden University College in the Netherlands, is quoted in the Guardian as saying: ‘The people of the state of California are more or less destroying themselves in order to give cheap almonds to the world.’

Organic walnuts

Added on September 27th, 2014
Found in A to Z of Wholefoods, Baking, Nuts, Organic

At Naturally Good Food we have a range of organic walnut products, including:

  • Walnut halves - available in sizes from 250g to 25kg (and of course, there is a 10% case discount on the smaller bags). This is a premium nut: if you want a more economical alternative, why not try walnut quarters?
  • Walnut quarters – these are the same quality as halves, and are ideal for cooking.
  • Walnut oil – organic virgin walnut oil is particularly sought-after for its unique taste, as it brings out the flavours in everything else. However, we mustn’t forget that it’s also a good source of a not very widespread essential fatty acid (one we don’t produce ourselves): alpha-linoleic acid. This is an oil for consuming as a dressing, rather than for use in frying.
