Does organic food really taste better?

I bought a bottle of organic olive oil the other day and I'm a bit disappointed that it's less flavorful than the regular olive oil I bought before. I always thought that organic food is more nutritious and flavorful. But my sister-in-law said it's not necessarily the case. What's your experience?

I believe it's definitely more nutritious but I'm on the fence for flavour! It definitely takes some getting used to that's for sure. There's no extra stuff added to it to enhance the flavour I think is why!

In my experience, the difference is negligible. I've heard that organic is better for you, so if you can afford it, go for it. If not, just make healthy choices and don't worry too much.

Here's an interesting little read about the difference in taste and health benefits: http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health/diet/science-vs-organic-food-is-it-really-any-better-for-you/news-story/27e0a58c3abef252b8fc7aa7eddfa5e9

I am a huge advocate of organics. I think our food is so saturated with additives, chemicals and preservatives when you taste an organic fruit, veggie, meat or product you truely experience what "real " food should taste like. The added salts and additional flavor enhancers have made our tastebuds addicted to craving all these crazy additives. Eating organic then may have you think oh it's not as flavourful or bland, it's because it's in its most natural vitamin mineral induced state. When I compare for example non organic to organic strawberries I find the organic berries to be so tasty, so full of flavor, dimension, and taste. Hands down organic for me is the way to go.

I try to eat organic as much as possible. Organic is healthier and more nutritious. Just wish it was more affordable

i really wish that there was more information on what can be called organic. In the summer I buy all our fruits and vegetables from a local farm, and they are so much tastier, last longer. It is a chemical free farm, and everything is fresh from the day. In fact, they actually pick the kale while you wait, and you can customize the bag with the kind you want, or a mix. When winter comes, I have to buy from a grocery store. So organic bananas cost 3 times as much as regular, but I am really unclear as to the difference, especially considering I peel and throw away the skin. If I understood better how the fruit inside is healthier, I may pay the difference, but I don't. I would love to be educated.

Some foods are definitely much better tasting when they're organic. One example: bananas. I wasn't convinced that they were worth any extra $ since you throw away the peel, but the flavour is amazing! You'll never go back to regular bananas.

Organic produce is not sustainable. There is nothing wrong with using a certain chemical if it is safe for surrounding wildlife in order to produce a higher crop yield. Also the term "organic" makes no sense if you have ever taken a chemistry course in your life; anything made up of carbon and hydrogen is organic!!!!!!
