There have been a number of studies comparing nutritional content of organic and conventionally grown plants and most have shown no significant differences in key vitamin and mineral contents. However, research has shown that, although the differences are small, some organic food has:
Lower nitrate levels
Higher vitamin C levels
Higher levels of selenium.
Organic food can be more expensive
Organic foods is often more expensive because production is more labour intensive and, without herbicides, pesticides and other chemicals, the yield is generally smaller.
Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner pioneered biodynamic farming, which places strong emphasis on ecological harmony and environmental sustainability. Biodynamic food is grown with particular composts, preparations and natural activating substances.
