Organic food does not seem to take over the ordinary foods. Researchers say that it is less likely to gain more from spending more on organic foods when compared to ordinary foods.
According to researchers there is little evidence that an organic diet provides greater nutritional benefits or that non-organic crops grown using pesticides and chemical fertilizers are more harmful than their organic competitors.
AdvertisementTom Sanders, the professor of nutrition and dietetics at Kings College London, claimed that organic food has no higher nutritional value compared to conventional food.
'It is a fantastic opportunity (organic food industry) to make money out of people because you can charge more for the food,' the Telegraph quoted him, as saying.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA), which issues advice to consumers, also states that organic food is 'not significantly different... from food produced conventionally'.
The study is being shown in BBC2's Horizon programme.
