Best Organic Food Stores in Chennai

Organic food is an Oxymoron! Is not food supposed to be Organic anyway? The mere fact that it is repeatedly asked these days highlights the knowledge that people have about the level of pesticides in our foods. Having said this, the awareness and consequentially demand for Organic food has significantly increased in the last few years. According to a report on Organic food by the Times of India, “The domestic organic food market is growing at the rate of 20-25% every year”

The authenticity of their organic origin is based on: Appearance (Non symmetric), Insects, Smell Test, Lab Reports, Shelf Life, Basic tests etc.. In our own experience we realized that many organic stores show lab tests, when reading the same please check if the sampling was done at random or done by the shop keeper 😉

Our gourmet team went on a Organic food trail to present you with the list of stores/ shops / super markets where you can get original organic food in Chennai.

Certification

Though not a norm in India yet, sometimes fruits and vegetables meant for exports do land up in the local market and have a sticker on them that can be checked. (4 digit PLU — price look up code — the sticker basically means grown with pesticides; 5 digit codes starting with 8 means GM grown, 5 digit codes starting with 9 means organically grown. In India, we basically have the regular 4 digit PLU which indicates that it is grown with pesticides).
