Probably you have seen the word "natural" used on the name of a product, printed usually with the green colour letters and fully highlighted on the packaging of the product.
Let's make it clear now and tell you the truth that "natural" has been misused by packers and manufacturers.
"Natural" is a food or an ingredient which does not contain any man made additive, especially the chemical and the genetically modified ones. Also, removal of a constituent or a fraction of a constituent or its alteration is not a process that nature will follow and therefore it is not natural either.
The presence of additives and preservatives including the so called natural flavourings are also an alteration of the way nature works.
This word has been so much abused to the point where consumers believe that product with "natural" on is organic too! Organic is word which must be used only by farmers, growers and manufacturers which follow the farming and growing organic standards. Those standards are governed by the principles of not using toxic chemicals such as pesticides, chemical weedkillers such as Round up glyphosate, growth hormones, antiobiotcis, chemical preservatives, and genetically modified organisms.
