How is organic food processed?
Certified organic products include those produced from crops not treated with chemicals. Just like our organic animal products, such as ducks, chicken, tilapia, catfish, pangasius cannot be treated with antibiotics or growth hormones.
Organic foods are minimally processed without artificial ingredients or synthetic preservatives to maintain the integrity of the product that began with practices on the farm.
Organic food must be processed in an operation that has been certified to organic standards, with special steps taken to make sure the organic ingredients are not co-mingled or contaminated with non-organic materials.
Just like cocoa processing the drying process. Drying of cacao is an important step in cocoa processing as some of the reactions which produce good flavored cacao are still proceeding during the drying process.
