Organic Food, Is It Good for Me?

Organic Vegetables - Healthy, No Chemicals Residue

Organic food has become a hot topic among all of us these days especially for us who lives in a developing country like Indonesia. We heard more and more people talking about eating organic food and the health benefits that we can get out of it. The food we consume everyday is important to our daily life and as we are getting older, our body needs the right kinds of food to ensure our well being are properly maintained physically and mentally.

Many people purchase organic food because they believe it has more benefits and is healthier than conventionally grown food. The advantages of organic food have been a hot topic for more than a decade now but it wasn’t until relatively recently that these benefits were supported by more than just hearsay.

Organic Food - more vitamins, antioxidants, prevent diseases

Nutritional Benefits

According to research studies by scientists, it has been proven that organic foods, including fruit, vegetables and milk, may be more nutritious than non-organic produce. Organic foods have higher levels of many disease-fighting antioxidants and essential vitamins that are highly beneficial for our bodies, including Vitamin C. β€œOn average, our research found higher vitamin C, higher mineral levels and higher phytonutrients – plant compounds which can be effective against cancer.”

Nicer & Better Taste

Yes, organic foods do taste better than conventionally produced foods. Many studies have found levels of specific vitamins, flavonoids or antioxidants in organic foods to be higher than the levels found in conventional foods. Many of the antioxidants are poly-phenols, flavonoids and other volatile compounds, which are responsible for a high proportion of the flavours in the foods we eat. The greater the amount of these protective compounds, the greater the flavours, hence tastier and more appetising.

Family eating organic foods - healthy choice

Healthier Environment

Last but not least, organic food and farming reach far beyond our own health and well-being. Organic food is safer for our entire planet – our children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and generation after generation, will be able to live longer in a much healthier environment. Scientific studies are beginning to show that that eating organic food results in lower levels of pervasive chemicals in humans, hence preserving humankind civilisation even longer.

With antioxidants that prevent heart disease, cancers, anti-inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, should we start eating organic foods from now on?

Panggung Coklat Terbesar di Grand Indonesia

Meskipun acara ini telah berakhir, alangkah baiknya apabila kita dapat melihat ulasan balik acara yang diadakan oleh The City of Bakeries dan Grand Indonesia pada bulan Lebaran dan Idul Fitri 2009 kemaren ini dari tanggal 28 Agustus sampai 27 September 2009. Dengan design Mediteranian style, anda dapat melihat panggung berlapis cokelat terbesar di Grand Indonesia, Shopping Town Jakarta. Panggung cokelat yang terbuat dari 1,5 ton cokelat ini memakan waktu hingga 1 minggu untuk pembuatannya dan memiliki panjang 12 meter, lebar 3 meter dan tinggi 7 meter.

Panggung cokelat ini berhasil memperoleh penghargaan dari Museum Rekor Indonesia (MURI) dengan kategori “Backdrop Panggung Berlapis Cokelat Ukuran 12x3x7m”. Backdrop diciptakan hampir menyerupai gedung, dibuat dari tumpukan bakery, cokelat dan permen. Pembuatan panggung ini merupakan sebagian daripada rangkaian acara The Flavours of Ramadhan yang juga menampilkan pameran produk pengusaha bakery di Jakarta, beberapa dari daerah dan memasarkan peralatan memasak.
