Of course it is! When people think organic they only think in terms of pesticides and herbicides that get applied to the plant and they think they can wash that off. Haha, no they can't! Organic means they are enriching the soil with nutrients whereby higher nutrition value, it means sustainability and no poisonous run-off, it also means giving the middle finger to Monsanto! Organic equals=GMO free. It means there are no embedded toxins and such also as well as things like chlorine.
In the very end its best to buy food from local, organic, sustainable farmers where you can see them practice what they preach. Have the USDA govern organics is kind've scary to me. Since we live in Canada we always go with Canadian grown and Canadian certified because we seem to hold organics to a higher standard. Also Europe is a great place too!
