Today, organic food is becoming more popular due to the realization of healthy self-improvement needs. Organic food refers to food products that are produced or processed without the use of any chemicals. Organic food consumption ensures natural nutrition.

The use of synthetic fertilizers has an immediate effect on human health as well as on the soil. They seep through the soil and enter the water bodies. Pesticide residue remains on food even after washing, thus making food toxic.
