What is inorganic food?

Answer

Inorganic food is any food that has utilized synthetic products, such as chemical fertilizers and pesticides, in its production. Genetically modified food is also considered inorganic.

The term organic food evolved from the need to differentiate between foods that have used chemical or genetic enhancers in their production and those that have not. There is a prevailing popular notion that inorganic foods, though offering opportunities for higher yields, have a lower nutritional value than organic foods. There is little scientific support for this and more research needs to be undertaken. But generally, inorganic foods are produced in higher quantities per unit of investment than organic foods.
