Wonder how soybeans would do in the desert
Thankfully the FDA regulates what can and cannot be referred to as organic. It cannot hold the certified organic stamp unless it has been inspected.
I think most places are rather trustworthy. Most of the organic things in our local supermarket are from small companies focusing on organic and healthful products.
If you can, try to find organic products that are produced as close to home as possible. We've visited several organic farms and spoken to the farmers....they all have a ton of pride in what they do.
