Is it better? Is it healthier?

The study in Brazil

The

farms were located within 1.5

kilometres

of each other and shared similar natural environments.

Fruits from 30 plants in each farming system were sampled and

analysed

Tomatoes grown on organic farms were 40 per cent smaller than those produced conventionally.

However, their concentrations of vitamin C were up to 57 per cent higher, and ripe fruits contained well over twice the quantity of phenolic compounds.

Plant phenols, such as flavonoids, are largely responsible for the health-giving properties attributed to many fruits and vegetables.

They help

the

body fight oxidative stress - a form of chemical damage linked to chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer and dementia.
