Although the new label designates only certified organic foods, theuse of the term "organic," with or without the label, impliesadherence to government standards. Although very small farms (thosewhich gross less than $5,000) are exempt from the certificationrequirement, they are not exempt from the …regulations and aresubject to inspection or other methods of enforcement. For practical purposes, there is no qualitative difference betweenthe terms "certified organic" and "organic." Certified organic(bearing the USDA logo) indicates only that the grower or processorhas submitted to official oversight by a certifying agent . Usingthe term organic alone still subjects the grower to governmentregulation, but without official oversight. Since only the smallest farms are exempt from certification, themajority of organic food consumers see will at least have thepotential to be certified. In practice, many small farms which areeligible to apply for certification, but lack sufficient resources,may choose not to undergo the detailed and costly certificationprocess. Although fifteen states do offer a cost-sharing program,which helps smaller farmers offset certification costs, the realityis that much of the organic food consumers see will likely beuncertified. Consumers who are more comfortable with government oversight willbe more apt to choose products that are certified, but those whoprefer to buy from small farms can still be assured of USDAoversight. You might also want to note that each certification process hasdifferent rules on what is considered organic. This is a big issuein the food business, as companies try to push different things,such as genetically modified ingredients, into the certifications. (MORE)
While we can pretty much agree on what is unhealthy and healthy, the degree to which something is unhealthy is somewhat subjective. Some items do stick out:. Hungry Man Packaged meals.. http://www.x-entertainment.com/articles/0744/. The image of the nutrition facts is almost heart stopping as …well:. http://www.x-entertainment.com/articles0744yucky.gif. It's one thing for a single meal to contain over 1000 calories (half of an average person's daily intake), it's another thing when one realizes that just half of your calories exceeds the maximum fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium recommended in a day. Fast-food companies love to point out that active young males need a larger number of calories. While that might be true, no one said it was best for them to be getting their 3000 calories a day from processed junk!. Hungryman also introduced a Hungryman XXL dish, with 1.5 pounds of food instead of the usual 1. I can't find the nutritional facts, but I'm sure they're even more frightening.

The evolution of, and continuous innovation to food preservation techniques over the years has been necessary for subsistence across the globe. Preventing the growth of bacteria, fungi, and other micro-organisms for the sake of storing food can be achieved through many diverse methods. Processes as …simple as drying and salting have evolved into more modern techniques such as irradiation and high pressure food preservation. Innovations to preservation practices are instrumental to the agricultural and manufacturing industries, the military, and to an extent, the survival of many developing nations. Increasing the shelf life of food has many obvious benefits -a larger food supply leads to lower prices for consumers and perishable foods become more transportable, to name a few. New preservation technologies are not just working to increase longevity, they are also functioning to sustain the same qualities of the food that make it desirable in the first place. The physical characteristics and chemical composition of the food will no longer be compromised during the preservation process. Studies have indicated that meat products, for example pork and tuna, have the potential to remain edible for seven to eight years (1). With new techniques such as high-pressure processing (HPP) and innovations to packaging materials, meals maintain their same fresh qualities over the course of their stowage. (MORE)

Depends on what you are drying. When I dry onion tops, celery, bell peppers, etc, I just spread the chopped item on my racks and dry them. ( I use a great home made dehydrator ) If you want to dry things like strawberries, banana's, apricots, etc., you can rinse the fruit in lemon juice to prese…rve their color. I could care less if my apricots turn a little brown, so I do not bother. How you store it after drying, is also a factor. Herbs I keep in jars in the pantry. Fruits I put in zip-locs in the freezer. You have to consider how long you plan on keeping the dried food. If you are going to store it for a long time, use the lemon. Drying is easy . . . Good Luck ! (MORE)
